NWA an Delta merger: a good business move?
April 15, 2008
Late Monday night a merger between Minnesota-based Northwest Airlines and Delta was announced -- a deal that creates the worlds largest airline. A University of Minnesota expert who can discuss this issue is:
J. Myles Shaver, professor and chair of Strategic Management and Organization, U of M Carlson School of Management
Shavers research interests include corporate expansion through diversification and mergers and acquisitions. Shaver feels a new Delta-NWA
carrier will struggle to be profitable. He says, rather than two big airlines struggling to make money, we'll likely get one really big airline struggling to make money.
