Topic of the Week: What About Eagle?

There’s plenty of talk about the American/US Airways merger, but there simply isn’t much at all about what will happen in the regional world. American Eagle remains in limbo. I spoke with Andrew Nocella, SVP of Marketing and Planning for US Airways about what might happen with Eagle, and he said that no decisions had been made, of course. That being said, he did note that he “liked the balanced model in terms of having both” owned and partner regional airlines. Meanwhile, there’s more to Eagle than just flying airplanes. It is now a pretty large ground handler that even handles flights for competitors like United. So what do you think will become of Eagle?
