Marmalade on toast

So I am not sure why this is not of greater notice here... but per the LA Times: American, US Airways may merge to form giant airline.  US Airways still has the most departures out of Pittsburgh, though trails Southwest by a fair bit in terms of number of passengers.  Seriously, over the last year year Southwest carried 36% more passengers out of PIT than did US Airways.  I should look up what that ratio was before they cut the flights to Philadelphia.

What it means?  Nominally there is not much overlap between US Airways and American flights out of PIT.  Just one American flight to New York City is all I see that overlaps directly with US Airways right now.  Of course, there could be all sorts of secondary impacts as the potentially combined airline adjusts its flights down the road. 

Remember Pittsburgh Pins Hope on Airport

The toast you ask... gotta read to the end of that last link.

Because it is old news? USAirways has been trying to buy American out of bankruptcy for the better part of a year.
