It means both. Most people are assuming that the reason this is happening is because of the merger... in other words, no more VS on the newly minted airline.

Some blogger suggested that. Dan, you think it's feasible?

Anythings possible, although I thought Virgin was trying to team together the rejects to create a 4th alliance.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

How ironic, I asked about it exactly a year ago (to the day) :D

(OT: According to wikipedia, Branson says he'll be forming a fourth alliance, do you guys think this will increase competition, or complicate fragment award travel?)
