Glenn Tilton joined Richard Quest on CNN today to discuss the United-Continental merger. As reported on Flyertalk,
The last question Quest had was: "On the internet bloggers are all over this merger. Flyertalkers are having a hard time determining if one airline is destroying the best or if the other is making the worst decision in its history."
Glenn Tilton immediately replied "I’d reply that these online bloggers have way too much time on their hands."
Ouch. Thanks Glenn.
But the more I think about this (when I should be studying for a final exam tomorrow), the more I think he just may have a point…
Still, give me an example of a merger that has worked to the benefit of the consumer the last two decades.
