What are your two cents?
It's funny how they say this merger "may" mean higher prices for travelers when in fact, it is going to cost more to fly now because there's no real competition. At least, with this merger nobodyâ€™s air miles are going to be lost, but man it sure is a sad day for travelers. I got nothing to cheer about.
This was one merger I was hopping wasn't gonna go become a reality because now we are down to 3 legacy carriers in the US. It sends shivers down my spine the thought that any of "big 3" US carriers left may try to merge in the coming future, which will no doubt someday occur. Oh well...
I can see little improvement for travelers from this merger. In fact, as travelers what we are going to see is a lot of integration problems and I expect prices to rise as the new merger airline faces off against the other three powerful mega-airlines.
