Re: AA & B6 announce Northeast Partnership

Where this goes is dependent upon a number of factors. If successful it could lead to an actual CodeShare agreement. Hopefully B6 management realizes that a full blown merger (even assuming it gets DOJ approval) would be a disaster. This might also help to prevent B6 from mergering with another com...
