The Summer of Mergers is Now Dead

What was shaping up to be the summer of the airline merger is now dead.  US Airways and United announced that they have decided that now is not a great time to merge.  Surprisingly (at least to me, and what do I know?) United was the company to call off further discussions.  It looks like Delta/NW will be the only pairup before the Bush administration’s laissez-faire antitrust policies disappear (depending on who wins in November, of course).
