The New HP US Going To Do Something?

Do you think that Southwest and JetBlue are in trouble by the new almost world-wide LCLF airline, IMHO, I think that Southwest better watch out......

I don't think anybody is in trouble yet. I also don't think JetBlue or Southwest have anything to fear.

HP/US hasn't happened yet. Oh yea, it's announced, maybe financed, still needs government approval, then the real work begins. Which operating certificate to use? Employee groups and seniority issues. Headquarters combining. Layoffs. The list could go on.
If HP/US is successful, I still don't see JetBlue or Southwest having any worries. More competition is not always bad.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

To sum up what SPREE34 said, just because there was a merger annoucement doesn't mean the HP/US marriage is going to succeed. They made one error already, and that is keeping the "US Airways" name. Such a horrible reputation upon hearing & seeing it. Regards.
