AA And US Air Complete Merger

American Airlines (AA) and US Airways finalised their merger earlier this week. The combined carriers offer a network of 6,700 daily flights and employ 100,000 people. The final major obstacle to the merger was removed in November when the US Justice Department dropped its objections to the deal. In return, AA and US Airways gave up slots at airports including Washington DC’s Reagan, New York’s LaGuardia, Boston's Logan and LAX in Los Angeles.
