Just when you thought air travel in the US could get no worse, two major airlines, Northwest and Delta, have announced a merger. I guess losing money hand over fist made them decide competition was bad. According to the NY Times, one possible consolidation measure would be to close hubs that are close to one another, which could include hubs Sasha and I were counting on to make life easier. Sigh. We'll just have to see. By the way, please note the deal is worth either 5 billion (according to the BBC) or 3 billion (according to the times).
