This past Wednesday, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation held hearings on the potential impact of airline mergers and industry consolidation. There was a particular focus on the possible US Airways - Delta merger. Further resources on this topic are: 1) a webcast of the Committee hearing; 2) written transcripts of testimony given at the hearing (including testimony from the CEO's of US Airways and Delta and the DOT's Assistant Secretary For Aviation and International Affairs); and 3) a Dallas Morning News story on the hearings. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee plans to hold hearings on airline consolidation next month as well.
