I normally don't post in the aviation forum because i don't know that much to contribute, i like just reading everything. but,
This merger business is just scarring the living pants off me. AA is by all means one of my favourite airlines, but, christ, they aren't exactly the nicest when it comes to business practices. Why can't federal regulators see that if the AA/TWA merger goes through, UA/US will probably go through too? I don't fly that often, but when I do, it's usually pretty high. If we have 2 less airlines (both primarily on the east coast) destroyed, something tells me that this is not good. competition is better, i do believe.
that's all i know.
