Bring on the Antitrust Enforcers! United and US Air to Discuss a Potential Merger
Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
Didn't we see this potential merger between United and US Air a few years ago? DOJ correctly raised concerns in the past. Unless something fundamental has changed since that time (and there has been some more consolidation with Delta/Northwest so I am not sure what the pro-competitive spin can be), I hope and assume that DOJ will move to block this merger should it become official.

This is approximately what I think of the proposed merger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEc9W2-NPVs&feature=related#t=00m07s
The anti-competitive effects are even worse than when they tossed this around the first time, with Continental now in the Star Alliance. Northeast and Transatlantic concentration continues.
