Alaska Air Apparently Acquiring Virgin America

WOW. If reports are accurate, Alaska Air is paying 2 Billion Dollars to purchase the Airbus dominated, San Francisco based Virgin America. This will be super interesting. One report I read from Bloomberg indicated if deal goes through it might even be finalized by Saturday night. 

Would love to be a fly on the wall in these discussions. Can't wait to chat with an Alaska Air pilot friend for his take on this.
