Will DL And NW Be Allowed To Merge?

Fri May 02, 2008 3:23 am

This is a poll. After all is said and done. After unions have had their say. After consumer groups have had their say. After politicians have had their say. After government regulators have had their say. After A.netters have had their say.......

Do you think DL and NW will merge or be allowed to merge?

Vote: I don't have a clue.

It seems to me that mergers are very expensive propositions. We seem to be in the frenzy merger stage of airline economics produced by high fuel prices. In today's economic climate, I am not sure bigger is better. I am happy that CO has decided to not persue the merger option. I am hoping that AA decides no on merger.

I Believe that they will be allowed to merge, due to little overlap, open-skies with Europe etc...
The question in my mind is will they be stronger for it...

With all of 12 overlapping routes and the DALPA (the only union that really had a say) on bored DL/NW will pass.
