    Anyone care to dispute this finding?


    "The conventional wisdom says that when major competitors in a given industry start to merge, that consolidation leads to higher prices for consumers and less competition overall. But a new study from the consulting firm PwC US finds that is not really the case—or at least, it hasn’t been for the U.S. airline industry in recent years."
