    Continental pilot union vocally objected

    a news release last week:

    United Pilots Support Continental Merger
    Apr 19, 2010
    Continental’s pilots are not commenting on the current speculation, but during the last round of consolidation talks in 2008, they and United’s ALPA leaders (who no longer head the chapter), vocally objected to any merger.

    I would have been expected that before any news release Continental pilot union position will be recorded so as not to give us a de-ja-vu or the 2008 "merger". Other then the Continental union everybody else may want a merger, but without it there will be no merger again - this is clear.

    Another hurdel may be that United stock price is too high for a deal - It was much lower in 2008 but it is a 'no go' anyway.
