Delta And UA Now In Merger Talks

Wed Nov 14, 2007 7:31 pm

It's official, so I thought it might deserve it's own thread...if not I guess the moderators can delete it:

I'm sure all the airlines have dialogues with each other regarding mergers. Just about every CEO in the industry has said it has to happen. That's all I'd think this is, for now anyway. The news just likes to run with stuff like this. I really don't see UA and DL matching up very well, personally.

But if it happens what will happen with the alliances???

UA is in STAR

DL is in SKY.

Good luck indeed. CVG is a goner; the airlines will claim "SLC will be a key part of our network, blah, blah" and then become the next PIT/STL. Dulles will stay, though, IMO. Huge local market.

It doesnt...the story is interesting: "There is a sense of urgency" meaning that if this does get done, it will be done incorrectly. Looks like UA mgmt mostly gets to run the airline. Yet it is DL mgmt that is the far more competent of the two carriers. UA mgmt can even run their own airline properly.

AGAIN: This is to make a few people at Pardus rich at the expense of everyone else. There is no reason for a merger.

I could see the smaller CVG and SLC hubs being very easily combined into the much larger more dominat ORD and DEN hubs (respectively).

It would seem to me that a lot of IAD's trans-atlantic traffic would be cut in favor for already existing services out of ATL and JFK, with ATL also handling a lot of southeast domestic travel. IAD would most likely become a focus city maintain services to major cities in the US as well as probably LHR and FRA.

The idea that this can get done by Jan 2009, is ridiculous.

UA wasted precious time in 2000-01 to adjust to the economic downturn pre-911, with the moronic UA/US merger..this will be at least 2x as difficult.

AA, FL and WN should be dancing over this. While these two DL and UA are dicusiing way to destroy their companies, AA, FL, CO and WN are looking for ways to grow smartly, ie internally without the pain of integration of fleets, employees etc.

Aside from the SLC/DEN overlap its a solid combination. CVG would undoutedly lose more flights but not hub status. I can see the new carrier spinning off the SLC operations for later sale or floatation to raise cash

Whether or not its a good merger is largely dependent on what type of deal they put together. If it's United buying Delta then the new carrier would be so saddled with debt that survival would be difficult. If it's a true merger with no money changing hands then the new carrier would be very solid.

UA/DL would be a market leader in all the major markets in the US and would have coverage to every region of the World. It could be a very profitable airline if managed well.

Won't this become the new Pan Am? Didn't UA buy the Asia, S. America and LHR routes, and DL the European routes, from Pan Am?

This merger would be a labor mess. Aren't most of the labor groups at DL non-union? How would they merge the workforce (militant unions with non-union ppl)? Route combinations make sense, but beyond that not much else.

If DL and UA are really desperate t omerge then they will make some huge concession...B6 and FL should demand that ALL DL slots at ORD be sold off to LCCs. AA should demand that sice DL has a decent presence at DCA, and UA at IAD that DCA slots go to them...etc etc.....this wont get done before Jan 2009....

Very much so. If DL/UA is not as good a fit as UA/Someone Else, then there is even more urgency for Pardus to shoehorn this deal by EOY to head off other players.

However, I suspect this will trigger other bids for a merger, and the shareholders will decide what makes sense.

That brings Sao Paulo to Chicago, Washington, New York and Atlanta on one airline. Does anyone think they would cut any of these and increase frequency to another? I sure would miss Delta being a "southern class" international airline.

I don't know why people think this doesn't make sense.

Outside of the inter-mountain west, there is very little overlap in route systems. The International networks are very complimentary and the combined carriers would have very strong positions in the largest O&D markets.

The biggest losers would be UA staff in Elk Grove, DL FAs, SLC and the regional carriers.

AA, anybody? They alone among the majors don't have a solid hub in the eastern time zone. IAD would be perfect for North-South connections, with international traffic.

UA (or the combined entity) would lose some of its biggest corporate contracts if it shuts down the IAD hub. There are organizations that have signed on with UA because of the IAD hub and that will redistribute their traffic to other European and Asian carriers out of IAD if the hub shuts down.

Quoting EXAAUADL (Reply 12):

What would they not ? Would they require one or more specific hubs to be closed, or would they be more generic and request that a certain number of hubs be closed, without specifying which ones ?

wouldn't that have to be the case anyhow more particularly with United's valuable NRT 5th freedom rights? i remember someone mentioned in another thread regarding a NW/DL team-up and the NW name would somehow have to remain if they wanted to keep the NRT hub. otherwise all those NRT slots would go back into a pot for the grabbing and the 5th freedom rights would no longer apply.

tho i could be wrong, please correct me if i am.  Smile

All I will add is that I do not believe the domestic US aviation market can sustain six full-service international operators, so consolidation must happen. Otherwise, we will continue to lurch from boom to bust to boom to bust again as has happened since Deregulation.

DL and UA make as much sense as anybody and they would stay in STAR because the US does not need three SkyTeam carriers and US cannot begin to serve STAR like UA can.

Dang it, I read the Pardus report 3 hours ago, I should've bought some stock then...

UA/DL would be a powerful, powerful combination...but also one that would have trouble getting regulatory approval without shedding alot of weight. CVG/SLC gone. Both carriers could be forced to dump some of their Int'l CTY pairs and downsize their largest hubs to allow competition. And then come the other mergers...

This rumor doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Ed Bastian has made several public statements just in the past week indicating that while DL is strongly considering merger possibilities, they would only act as acquirer and not acquiree. It would also ruin all the new loyalty built up in the DL community - employees, customers in hub cities, even politicians - from the "Keep Delta My Delta" campaign. I'm inclined to think this "source" is a hedge fund investor who's in favor of some quick gains he might get from this proposal and wants to attract attention to it.

That os cuz even the mgmt of DL isnt in control of this..it is Pardus. And all your points are right of course. But pardus doesnt care about the health of a post merger UA/DL...this is about a quick bump inthe share prices so Pardus can dump the shares.

Surprised nobody's speculated about fleet combination yet:

Here's what each operates at a glance:
744 (UA)
777 (both, DL has more coming)
764 (DL)
763 (both)
757 (UA RR powered, DL PW powered)
738 (DL)
73G (to be delivered to DL)
733/735 (UA)
A319/320 (UA)
MD-88 (DL)
