    Default American Airlines / US Airways merger in doubt

    This is DR related since one of the main airlines to the DR is American. The government in the US is filing suit to stop the merger of American Airlines and US Airways because it was cost consumers 100's of millions of dollars.

    American Airlines is professional in Monopoly, I think that is the best to stoped and do not let be the bigest, will kill other airlines and then customers will pay very hight price for tickets.

    I thought AA stopped flying to SDQ. Am I misinformed?

    I believe it was two direct flights from NYC that were eliminated. One to Santo Domingo and the other to Santiago. Flights from MIA are still available.

    I switched to Jet Blue about 5 years ago, never missed AA after that.
    The "Suit" is just a "Show" from Obama's man at the Dept. Of Justice, Atty Gen. Eric Holder, to make the American public think they are trying to protect them from "Big Business"!
    My money is still on the merger.
    The alternative is that AA goes "Belly Up", (No Pun Intended) and there would be even LESS competition in the airline industry.

    If you have flexibility you can do well with tickets, not having to pay $700. I just booked Jet Blue end October and it would have been $245. I used points b/c if you used them by today you got 25% discount, so for 10,600 points and $33 and change I'm booked! JFK - POP
