Whats the chance that Compass would eventually get Western bases after Delta and NW merge?

I don't think Compass will be around in two years.

I heard a rumor from top management at Republic that they are in the works of purchasing Compass. I believe that an anouncement will be made after the new year...

This has been around the rumor mill for awhile. Our new DL 175's are exact copies of the compass birds.

I think the NW pilot contract prevents a sale for 36 mo.

Let me scratch off some basses for you.

Memphis is as good as closed. CVG is on the block. Look at the hubs... then look at a map of the US. Then think... which ones would I close if I couldn't make a profit.

It would be difficult to sell an airline in this market. However, Delta's management talks from time to time about sales of their WO carriers.

I predict that when the SLI is complete you will see the CPZ pilots stapled to the bottom and all the CPZ planes flown by DAL. You heard it here first!

Thanks for the in depth analysis, very helpful.
