U.S. Airways bid for Delta

Delta passengers have plenty of questions about the news of a takeover offer by U.S. Airways.

U.S. Airways made an eight billion dollar cash and stock bid for Delta in a deal that would create one of the world's largest carriers.

The move comes despite Delta's repeated statements that it isn't interested in merging.

Some passengers say the potential deal wouldn't change the fact that Atlanta would remain a hub in the southern part of the country.

Others see it as a chance to increase international flights out of Atlanta.

But the one thing that some passengers don't think will change is prices, which some expect will keep going up.

Delta has built up a loyal customer following in the Atlanta area, where the airline is based.

Its primary hub, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is the world's busiest airport in terms of passengers.
