Who said anything about a "merger"?Who would you put merging with AA? Or even UAL?? Or would a Delta/SWA merger be easier as they are the two strongest as far as balance sheets and available $$$ to do the mergers???
I still just don't think the regulators would like it and still say they would more than likely request way too much dumping of routes, flights, and other assets to make it doable for 2 of the big 4 to combine. But, never say never...
Who said anything about a "merger"?
i agree. its a pickle they allowed who is too big to fail? piece out? will be interesting how it plays out over the next few years. Americans debt and pension liabilities lend a new dimension (pun intended) since uniteds pension have already been dumped and aa's hasnt if they liquidate wil the government be willing to take it over? will they allow a mega merger? or will things turn around?I do not believe the govt would allow DL UA or AA to merge. May be some of the smaller airlines will.
O.K. But as someone who worked for two different Airlines, I think I understand about mergers! Been there!
Well well, and now we have a decision about AA and JB tie up. The first step hurdle is cleared for take off. Could this be a jump start for a possible AA JB meger? The article says they agreed to give up some slots but doesn't say how many and/or if it includes other airports besides JFK. Interesting. This was filed for back at mid 2020. SWA and Spirit were the 2 most outspoken against this tie up so curious to what they had to give up. Anyone in the JFK area have more details???
