“Work Hard and Fly Right” has now wed “Fly United”. Yes, the merger is completed. Continental and United Airlines are now one company under United Continental Holdings, Inc.
According to Tourism Review.com “Delta’s brief spell on top shot in the American airline league has come to an end as the combined forces of the merging companies have an expected number of departures at 5.800, whereas Delta is slightly lagging behind with 5.715. The effect of the combination of both companies is expected to bring an extra $1.2 billion in revenue per annum. The $3.2 billion merger should begin to pay for itself in a very short time indeed.”
So much for commercials like these. They will need a total makeover, including new jingles. Perhaps the dragon in this commercial is Delta Airlines.
