Doubt that will happen since the combined airline would not increase its European footprint by much. Not sure what the combined JFK/PHL-Europe situation is like at UScAAre, but JV w/ BA/IB doesn't really do the type of business in destination cities that would warrant a shedding routes. I can see a possible loss of slots at LHR, MAD, BCN and maybe CDG. That's about it.
