It's not an emotional remark, it's pure business facts. As EA CO AS stated, the people running AAG now, have been doing an excellent job for more than just 2 decades. They will be able to determine the value of keeping B6 a seperate entity vs merging it into AS.But again, this isn't going to happen, no need to berate people who don't agree with your feelings regarding B6, your arguement ends, when you can't be civil.

By this logic Continental, which was in a much better financial position than United ahead of their merger, should have been the surviving name.[/quote]
Until you can pop some facts out, your assertions are just that. You are still spending time trying to win a losing arguement. B6 is trying to retain marketshare in BOS & JFK against DL. Do you really think one A-321neo flight to STN or LGW (if they are lucky) is going to make B6 a global entity?
They couldn't make LGB work, despite being the dominant carrier (no brand recognition). The article shows that LGB is not a hub & they are not protecting it any longer. B6 is dead on the west coast with the exception of their T-cons, which are likely East Coasters going West. Since you have all the facts, try checking the POS in S. California on B6 vs AS.
