US Airways to Delta: "Fine, Keep Your Broke-Ass Airline"

From the New York Times:

The latest chance at a merger ended yesterday, when US Airways withdrew its $10.2 billion offer for Delta Air Lines, after it failed to win the support of Delta’s creditors, which included the Boeing Company and the federal pension agency.

Delta is determined to go it alone, but analysts are still speculating that eventually Delta will find a partner. Will it be Northwest?
