We talked about this last week: American Airlines is going to buy its longtime, and now bankrupt, rival TWA. American is also buying a smaller part of US Airways, and part of another, new airline called DC Air, based, you might guess, in Washington DC.

Now, this deal comes on the heels of the other big airline merger: last May's announcement that United Airlines wants to takeover US Airways. The big questions now center on the future: assuming the government approves all this, will we one day have only two or three major airlines? And who stands to gain the most from all these deals? Who will be harmed? Last week, we talked about the history of TWA - Now Rudy will go a little more in-depth, and talk about the real winners and losers.

If you'd like us to address your travel questions or concerns, send us an email. Or, you can snail-mail them in. The address is The Savvy Traveler, in care of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90007. Or call me at 888-SAV-TRAV.
