I was just reading Google News when I noticed an article reporting that Delta and Northwest have agreed to a merger. This follows multiple airlines going defunct ( Aloha, ATA, Skybus, Skyway and soon Champion Air ) and basically a very bad week for American Airlines.
But the thing interesting to me is that a lot of other airlines are ready to get hitched.... they just didn't seem to want to be the first to walk up to the middle of the dance floor.
So let the dominos fall cause consolidation is starting. Let's see how fast my old friends at Continental get married to United.
