Following is a list of every airline merger and takeover I remember and reading about during the 1980's:
Continental/New York Air
Were there any proposed mergers that did not go through?
During the 1990's, I can only recall three mergers taking place:
I know that Frontier and Western Pacific had concocted a plan to merge, but Frontier backed out with WP's bankruptcy filing.
Also, both American and United attempted to buy USAir late in 1995. Neither attempt transpired.
Did I miss any? If there were any not listed, please list them for me, along with the date.
