You're right, its ATL.

Mine:

JetBlue and United are merging, with both the JFK and EWR hubs remaining despite anti-trust laws.

Frontier and Spirit are merging.

Delta is making a focus city in X city.
Thinking of a good signature is hard...

Thing is, I'm not even American, but the bias (or pro- thinking) of Americans vis-à-vis these three [huge, but otherwise] pretty un-remarkable airlines is nothing short of mind-boggling..... We Europeans are rarely so biased towards airlines, including our national/flag-carriers....

It is really mindboggling. See the recent LATAM thing. Most of the extremely lively discussion was about how if affected American Airlines and Delta. Barely a squeak about how it affected any airlines in the rest of the world. You even gets threads about which alliance Azul is going to join etc., which turn out to be yet more US3 infighting.

Yeah, the level of self-centred idiocy ['cause that's what it is] and lack of any sense of geo-spatial awareness and relativity is horrifying. :rotfl: :rotfl: Like as if DTW really was the centre of the universe :rotfl: :rotfl:
