Default Mega Merger?

I never thought I would see a Northwest/ Delta merger, or an American/ US Airways merger or a United/ Continental merger.

I'm seeing a pattern. I bet the end game is United, Delta and American Merger to have one large National Airline.

I guess the next few posts will tell me that I'm insane. That is fine with me.

The first rule about Green Giant is to not talk about Green Giant. Lol. My favorite veggies are from Green Giant in the frozen foods section.

I hope you are wrong. This is a scary thought...I don't like the idea of airline Comcast.

Default Merger of US Airways and American Airlines

The merger of US Airways and American Airlines is $ 11 billion deal and it is one of the biggest deal and it created the world's largest airline. Though it was a very complicated process but with the help of merger and acquisition advisors, this deal was successful.

Air travel is a low margin commodity. The average citizen only cares about low ticket prices. If a mega-merger ever gets approved (not likely) this will be significantly detrimental to the traveling public. The gubment knows this.

It would not surprise me to see another smaller merger of two "super low-cost carriers" in the future, especially if oil prices go up. Beyond that, a mega-merger of the "Big 3" is not likely to happen IMHO.

You can look at other industries and what the DOJ will approve. They have never allowed what you post and in fact have done the opposite and forced the breakup of companies that gained that type of market share.
