I agree. Concessions will be made. It's a bluff by DOJ to make it easier for them to get concessions out of the new AAG. DOJ doesn't have a case. They approved UAL and Delta, how can they throw a flag on this and win? Even the EU and a the bankruptcy approved the merger... THE EU FOR CHIRST SAKE! Once reorganized they will start making huge profits, due to better competition efficiency with the other big boys. Hell they just had a good profitable quarter, and the merger is still not done!
Do you really think the majority of Americans want this merger to go through? All consumers want is low fares and have their baggage arrive with them. Now as a stock holder of this stock all you care about is getting some of your money back. At least be honest when you make a statement like this. It's like buying GM stock I lost money in all I cared about cutting my losses. I could care less about GM I was against the taxpayers bailout.
The airlines including American Airlines have not been consumer friendly and it's about time they get back what they were doing to consumers. They will control many areas of the country and take advantage of the public. They can try to give up routes but that will not help. This merger was a hype by American A management and the government is using their statements against them. American get consumer friendly and stop treating the public like cattle going to slaughter.
