U.S. Antitrust Restriction Removed; American Airlines Creates International 5-Airline 'Alliance'

Five airlines from five countries to 'act as one':
American, British Airways Accord Accepted by U.S.

Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- AMR Corp.’s American Airlines and British Airways Plc won tentative U.S. government permission to deepen their trans-Atlantic alliance as they counter competition created by the 2008 lifting of flight restrictions between the U.S. and Europe.
American Airlines, the second-largest U.S. carrier, and British Airways, Europe’s third-biggest, may jointly price, market and schedule international flights in their Oneworld alliance without fear of antitrust prosecution, the U.S. Transportation Department said today.
The decision “beggars belief,” said Richard Branson, president of Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd., a British Airways competitor that had campaigned against the agreement...
Carriers restricted by law from cross-border mergers seek such grants of antitrust immunity to act more like single entities. Iberia Lineas Aereas de Espana SA, Finnair Oyj and Royal Jordanian Airlines are also part of the agreement, which is still being evaluated by the European Union.
American and British Airways also won tentative approval for a separate joint venture with Iberia, according to the Transportation Department order.

Total control of the entire industry worldwide is the goal, and that goal is on the front burner...Creating this global airline system will involve a "drastic reshaping" and "cross-border" structuring"

re: "cross border mergers...act more like single entities"

Consolidation is the word. A one world consolidated airline industry for the one world global management system. Consolidation of security systems globally is underway, and now, through the 'overhauling' of federal antitrust laws, the way is being furthered for the next big step - permitting "cross border mergers", i.e. international alliances of carriers that they can "act more like single entities".
You can be certain that the 'acting' stage will be temporary. Morphing into the actual thing is without doubt the end goal. Total domination and nothing less.
Airline travel, i.e freedom of movement for the 'average Joe', will not be 'sustainable' in the NWO. In other words, the world-citizen's ability to come and go as he/she pleases in the 666 micromanaged future will be terminated. Absolute control over populations cannot be maintained otherwise. Where, when, and if...you travel will in the future be decided by those who have the global monopoly of the airline industry.
This scenario is fast becoming a reality.
*Note the name of this new 'American Airlines-British Airways-Iberia [Spain]-Finnair-Royal Jordanian' airline monopoly. Acting like a single entity, they are named appropriately - the "Oneworld" alliance.
