    This article was in the New York Times reporting on the merger story. It is very interesting for those of us who lived through it from a customers perspective

    A lot of the airline business is making seemingly very small cost cut or weight cuts. It's such a big business that these tiny fractions become significant.

    Perhaps it's because most of my flights are TATL and I avoid JFK, but I've almost always come in on time or early westbound. I've had the most delays on the eastbound departures although my flights into LHR have typically been close to on time or a bit late...presumably because of the fines LHR imposes if flights show up too early.
