    I agree 100% with the last sentence. It has been a boringly slow march to a merger but now the real mayhem begins!

    I’m sure the AS/AA partnership will survive. US doesn’t have a big west coast to west coast presence.

    I’m glad i moved my excess annual mileage from AS to UA as i knew this was going to happen. My first ever status was in 2008 as a US Silver. I didn’t like them from the start but their schedules worked mixing work and the long distance relationship I was in

    I hope the AS partnership survives as well. Any idea if one way redemptions will still be available?

    @Seth : new LAX build-up within west coast would end up competing with both AS and WN … hard to make money in such scenarios

    The best way to strengthen LAX is by adding TPAC flights.

    I wouldn’t do anything with LAX apart from cut duplicate routes, LAX is pretty much divided equally among all the carriers and there is no real way to attain a dominant position here and reap the benefits that that brings. Sure they will be able to dominate some routes like LAX-PHL or LAX-DFW, but not for any significant gain.

    I have a TK J-class RT purchased for Oct/Nov (LAX-IST-DEL) and am wondering whether I will be US FF credit for it.

    What are the pros and cons of changing my allegiance to UA? I fly both domestic and intl … and almost always get upgraded on domestic flights.

    P.S. I live in PHX and have been elite since the HP days, which is why I’m US elite (100K miles/year).
