Turism&Travel : ALPA president: Consolidation in US airline industry inevitable

Wednesday 24 February 2010

S. airline industry is "inevitable," the president of the Air Line Pilots Association union said on Wednesday.

Capt. John Prater told the Reuters Travel and Leisure Summit that under current circumstances, a combination between United parent UAL Corp and Continental Airlines Inc made the most sense, as the carriers have little route overlap.

However, Prater added that he had no indication from the companies that they were having merger discussions.

Prater also said that he felt that monitoring pilots in the cockpit would not improve flight safety.
