Everyone is so worried about opinion vs fact. this is my opinion, usair, and united WILL merge, take it to the bank, they have been trying, and will continue to try until they accomplish their goal. their route network matches perfectly, they both are reducing their overhead/costs(at our expense, obviously, that means management personell who post here also),US went through bankruptcy(too quickly!!), united is there now, and will emerge. they will both be smaller in regards to debt load/overhead, will satisfy govt. regulators, and they will merge. my friend, DAVE, says consolidation is inevitable. but, he needs to cut costs more to make it worthwhile. he'll succeed., one way or another. in my humble opinion, this is the obvious, hope i'm wrong, pit maint is TOAST if this happens. then again, we lose airbus arbitration, we are toast in pit anyway, 73s we'll be gone faster than you can count to ten. good day!! more later :angry: :angry: :angry:USA320Pilot said:767jetz:
Let me be a little more specific...there is US Airways management and Wall Street reports that United could be rejected by the board. Apparently, the board is concerned with the industry-wide revenue break down, especially since the board found United to be overly optimistic in its last application regarding revenue projections.
Regardless, check this story out:
