I don't understand the logic at all. If both airlines merge, the consumer will be left with few choices, smaller cities will lose flights in the attempt to save money. I predict with the economy now going in the hole and higher and higher oil prices we will see more of these cost savings. The merger will only benefit the stockholders and do nothing for the employees or public. Sadly, the price of a ticket will increase and affordable air travel for the masses will be a thing of the past.
