"I would be lying if I didn't admit sadness that our wonderful airline is merging with another," Branson shared in a blog post.

So there was sadly nothing I could do to stop it."
"In 2007, when the airline started service, 60 per cent of the industry was consolidated. Today, the four mega airlines control more than 80 per cent of the US market. Consolidation is a trend that sadly cannot be stop."
