Will Worldspan exit with a whimper?

The powers that be in the USA have given their tentative approval to Worldspan's "merger" into Galileo. Still subject to the EC approval process which is under review this is likely to drag on for at least another 4 months.

Significant challenges remain - like how do you explain the value without merging the 2 platforms. Sorry guys I just dont buy your logic at the moment. However I am open to hearing a good story.

So the once great Worldspan will likely fade into the sunset rather than go out with a bang.
