I'll believe it when I see it
Today the DOJ signed off on the Northwest / Delta merger. The DOJ, in their infinite wisdom, said, "...The merger likely will result in efficiencies such as cost savings in airport operations, information technology, supply chain economics, and fleet optimization that will benefit consumers," they wrote. "Consumers are also likely to benefit from improved service made possible by combining under single ownership the complementary aspects of the airlines' networks."
Congrats to the board and the major shareholders of Northwest who finally got an exit strategy.
Sucks for the rest of us. (sigh)
I better get my ass in gear burning up my miles....
