More airline merger mania in the works?

 Just when you thought the U.S.-based airlines were done with merger mania, it looks like they're not.

Bloomberg is reporting that Virgin America is entertaining sale offers to jetBlue and Alaska Air.

Which combination makes more sense? From a route perspective, jetBlue and Virgin America have a lot of overlap (lots of trans-con routes such as Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, Washington, JFK to the West Coast), so Alaska Air would be a better match, although jetBlue also has a large presence in the Caribbean and Latin America, which neither Alaska nor Virgin has. On the other hand, Alaska flies mostly Boeing 737s, while jetBlue and Virgin share the same Airbus aircraft, which would make maintenance, crew training, obtaining a joint operating certificate, and purchasing less expensive.

Perhaps we'll eventually see a three-way tie-up? Alaska/jetBlue/Virgin into a carrier more capable of competing with United, Delta, American, and Southwest? I vote for the combined carrier to operate under the jetBlue banner. It's just a better airline name than Alaska, which as a brand is too tied geographically to a particular state (even though it flies everywhere these days). And I've never liked the sexual connotation of  "Virgin." Sorry, Richard Branson, you cheeky thing.

Speaking of mergers, will it be long before we hear of a marriage between Frontier and Spirit, two airlines with a very similar business model?
