Not sure how it will affect me, because it's totally out of my influence, but looks like Alaska Airlines and JetBlue are both trying to buy Virgin America. By this time next month (or in several months) I may be employed by a different airline.

I expect you have enough seniority by now to survive any transition of that kind. But it is interesting to speculate what kind of atmosphere the new owners might create.

I hope it all works out well for you, Steve!

Depending on the airline and how they integrate, Steve might be merging into a pool of agents senior to him. I don't know what the turn over rates are like now, but when I worked for an airline 14 years ago, it was never good. The plus side would be an expanded network to be able to travel on, and an Alaska/Virgin merger may create an interesting route map. I guess the big concern is that the corporate culture that is "Virgin" doesn't change too much.

ugh... I'll be totally bummed if that happens. Virgin America is such an awesome experience, Alaska, and their little prayers on napkins, not so much.
