    who would have thought Alaska Air ever buying Virgin America? The deal is about $3 billion and if it goers through will make it the 5th largest airline in the US.

    Sounds like Alaska Air wants to dominate the West Coast; hence buying Virgin would be an excellent move. Saying this, Alaska merging Virgin unto them won't be much of a competition with the big boys, but it will be stiff competition to JetBlue for sure.
