The event horizon of passenger aviation

In the news today, I read of a proposed merger between US Airways and Delta, once Delta emerges from bankruptcy protection.

Oh dear Lord, the suckfulness will be strong in this combo.

US Airways and Delta are at the top of my list of "airlines I never fly."

Delta has never once arrived on time, in my experience, and US Airways lost my luggage.


Think there's a reason they're both in big financial trouble, other than the "expensive jet fuel" excuse that doesn't seem to be bothering carriers like Southwest and JetBlue?
