(NECN) - Are we nearing the end of the individual legacy airline carrier era?

With Delta and Northwest and United and Continental merged, and as American Airlines is in bankruptcy court and U.S. Airways circles for a takeover, they could be the last in a line of mergers.

Allen Michel, a finance professor at Boston University, joins NECN Business to talk about what the future of airlines holds. Michel talks about how a merger can be avoided, who would benefit the most from a merger between U.S. Airways and American Airlines and how prices for customers will fare.

Watch the attached video for more.
