Has Anyone Thought About This Scenario?

Fri Apr 20, 2001 2:36 pm

Although the United/US Airways deal will most likely go through, has anyone given any thought to what a US Airways/America West merger would look like ? With very similar Airbus and Boeing fleets, HP could theoretically give US the Western kick that would give it that critical mass. Or conversely, US could give HP the Eastern presence that it's been trying to achieve. With an expanding Trans-Atlantic presence, Pacific service from Phoenix or Vegas is something that would not be that far fetched for the combined airline. Any thoughts ?
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

dunno if it would be a nice fit economically, but it seems to fit regarding their networks...

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

America West is so screwed up, with their management, maintenance, i cannot think of anyone who would want to take them over. To many internal difficulties.

Sounds a little like PSA II. Their Airbuses have different engines, too (a point I know TEDSKI was about to make).

It might be a good idea, but as mensioned, it's only if the UAL/US deal doesn't go through.
