    This rumor again? ;)

    At this point the media just seems to cycle through the same handful of merger/buy in stories every other week. US Airways, IAG, Alaska, JetBlue, repeat.

    But yes with regards to AA, it's all wait and see. :)

    It's only time before a reputable news source (perhaps The Onion) will write, "United/Continental Holdings to Purchase Stake in DFW Based American Airlines To Insult City of Houston.":D

    "help cement the U.S. carrier's membership in Oneworld" huh? is there really much serious doubt that even if there were a US/AA tie-up or B6 or whoever, that the resultant entity would remain in OW? I suppose anything could happen but still...

    another day another AA merger rumor!

    Even US has stated they'd leave *A and move to OW should they nab AA. Which leds me more towards "drumming up drama" than "news worth repeating" for now.
