The merger of these 2 carriers makes no sense. If it did it would have happened while the DL/NW and CO/UA marriages were happening. We are all learning more about AA's skilled management team. With all the issues at US Airwest they have nothing better to do than buy domain names. Even if the two were to merge, which pack of geniuses would run it? How about the world cup game predicting octopus, oh wait, it died. So what, it's still a better option

AA will emerge as a stand alone carrier however much different than it is today. It will survive only with outsourcing of ground personnel and putting regional flying out for bid.

When Delta and others contract out their ground employees, the price of a ticket does not drop a penny. There is no benefit to the flying public. The result is that middle class jobs with health benefits become McDonald's type jobs with no benefits. Don

The airline industry is no longer a place to have a career. If I was 18 again I would get a job with a contract firm that works an airline maybe to travel a bit and get industry related experience, then move on to my career after college. The contracting out of labor isn't for the benefit of the flying public, it's for the front office bonuses.
