Everybody for sale

As I write this, offers to buy my former employer - Clear Channel - are on the table, and people are being laid-off left and right in anticipation.

This morning, I saw that US Airways made an $8 billion cash and stock offer for Delta. If this goes through, I shudder to think that all of the awful operational flaws of US Scare will carry over into Delta (a SkyTeam partner of Continental).

Does this mean that Star Alliance (United, US Air/AMWest, et al) and SkyTeam (Delta, Continental, Northwest) will be working in concert? Will practically all legacy carriers in the US now be aligned?
