DAL could be a big winner of USAir/AMR which controls 63% of DC (according to CNBC) has to give up a decent amount of their gates at DC. The only buyer with the gravitas to buy might be DAL. That could be said for any number of other assets at airports USAir/AMR dominate at this time. This could get very interesting for DAL if the right assets are out there at the right price.
I agree and bought 1K at $19.20. I don't get how DAL is not a winner. It is entirely possible DAL could end up with some juicy domestic assets of US Air/AMR as part of any ultimate agreement between DOJ and the six states' attorney generals. The USAir deal makes sense but I think that $20M proposed payoff to AMR's CEO upon exit is now absolutely gone as part of any deal.
