You've already seen it the past year or so with transfers of 145's and 700's from one carrier to the next, both amongst privately held and wholly owned subsidiaries.

There won't be mergers. Just shrinking and shut downs. Mergers are a pipe dream of pilots.
This is the facts, Jack.

Possible exception if somebody needed the pilots more than the planes, and badly enough to buy an intact seniority list.
