In reference to the proposed mergers. I think if the twa --aa merger happens, and the us airways/united merger goes through--there will be no competition--such as national/eastern deal in the 70's/80's. Also it will continue with the next big two--delta/continental merger will be next. in the airline business nobody wants to be left behind--lets hope this doesnt happen--to have only the big "3". The aviation industry is truly amazing with so many major carriers--hub and spoke cities, i respect all of you for your great interest and work in this remarkable field.
