What are the odds that we are going to see some interesting Hybrid liveries between the two?
I think the odds are Zero. Hybrid liveries really aren't a thing anymore. (They weren't in the AS/VX, WN/FL, DL/NW, UA/CO, or AA/US mergers.)
Airlines in the middle of mergers just tend to repaint the planes into the surviving carrier's livery ASAP.
Given the different products between B6 and NK, I expect that the merger will look much more like the WN/FL integration where the Southwest product never flew under the Airtran brand or vice versa. B6 remove several NK airplanes at a time to update them to the B6 product and livery, moving them over from being sold as NK flights to being sold as B6 flights. This'll take some coordination, and B6 may or may not be upto the task.
I was thinking. If and when this all gets approved and the gets the green light. Could we at least see B6 turn on the “free WiFi” thats currently already on the NK planes (if any) and roll out the soft product (drinks and snacks) to the NK fleet while the hard product is switched to B6 standards?
