Sure, you're about the 10,000,000 person to give a buyout rumor about Alaska in the last 5 years. I doubt that'll happen anytime soon considering that Alaska has one of the higher priced stocks in the industry.
Good time for Midwest Express to buyout there competition in K.C.
Then they wouldn't have to base there so called business plan on what Vanguard does. The old 737's would fit in real nice with the old DC-9's.
