I do not think they will merge anytime soon.

I don't think the governments involved would permit it. If they do, however, I'll move to Russia and ride Antonovs. Evil or Very Mad

I wouldn't call it a 'merger' as such... but rather Airbus buying out Boeing Ninja

Believe me they will not merge, it is not on the cards at all!

And we, the consumers, are better for it because all the competition means bigger and better airliners.

Airbus isn't interested in acquiring a producer of high quality aircraft like Boeing.

Airlines would probably go on strike, because a merge means less competition, which means higher prices. If prices go any higher, airlines wouldn't afford aircraft and their maintenance

The real danger isn't price, although a company without competition will certainly be tempted to get greedy. The real problem is what happens if that company designs a plane that turns out to be a real dog. Where do the airlines get their planes, then?

Definitely not. They would be stupid to merge as both have different views on aircraft, and if they did, like previous posters said, there would really be no competition, meaning that they could design plane to the manufacturers requirements rather than the airline.
