Out of curiosity, would there be any warranted efforts to stop this
merger because of anti-competitive forces (or over concentration) ?

While I personally never really liked McD products, I am saddened to
see such a big corp go. It will be very interesting to see what Boeing
does with the DC-9 line of planes (easier to say DC-9 than all the
different derivatives that are current).

I have a distinct impression that McD will loose its
personality/presence in the commercial airline business and that Boeing
will
basically gobble that part up and "paint" it Boeing. Is this a fair
assumption ?
