Spirit Airlines says expects DOJ decision on JetBlue merger in around 30 days
Former Spirit Airlines CEO on travel industry: ‘Everyone can step up their game’
Former Spirit Airlines CEO Ben Baldanza provides his outlook on the travel industry amid pilot shortages and outdated tech.
Spirit Airlines Inc said on Tuesday it expects U.S. antitrust regulators to decide whether to allow the low-cost carrier to proceed with its $3.8 billion merger with JetBlue Airways Corp in the "next 30 days or so."
"We are now waiting to see whether the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed suit to block the deal or allows us to proceed," Spirit CEO Edward Christie said during an investor call.
The DOJ did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
