BTC and IAPA Question Proposed Delta/Northwest Merger

April 28, 2008 By: George Dooley

The Business Travel Coalition (BTC) and the International Airline Passengers Association (IAPA) jointly urged the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Antitrust Subcommittee to consider consumer and competitive issues when examining the proposed Delta Air Lines and Northwest merger.

Congress must instead focus its analysis on implications for the competitive structure of the industry resulting from a radical consolidation of the other major network carriers.

“Moreover, Congress needs to understand the total consumer costs resulting from massive service disruptions and the degradation of the reliability of the system," the BTC and IAPA said. "The direct, indirect and opportunity costs for mid-size communities that lose efficient connectivity to important business centers around the country and globe need to be quantified.
