Making Sense of the Merger

Big airline mergers raise uncertainty for consumers worried about higher fares and for cities wanting to protect air service. Cincinnati's Delta hub is holding on by a thread two years after its merger with Northwest. Continental's CEO, who will be CEO of the merged airlines, says it's "premature to talk about Cleveland service levels, or any hub for that matter." Cleveland mayor Frank Jackson took the long view Monday, telling reporters, "At the end of the day, somebody's going to fly out of Hopkins." Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop as we measure the merger's potential impact on Northeast Ohio.
