Aa And Us Airways Confirm Merger

American Airlines (AA) and US Airways have confirmed an $11bn merger that comes just 14 months after AA filed for bankruptcy. The merged carrier will retain AA’s name and will be headquartered in Dallas, but will be headed by US Airways’ CEO, Doug Parker. Once merged, AA – which will be part of the oneworld alliance – will operate over 6,700 flights to 300 destinations each day, making it the world’s largest airline. "With the largest global network, strong hubs, the best alliance partners and an even stronger oneworld [alliance], the most modern fleet, a solid financial foundation and the finest team of people in the industry, we will once again be an industry leader worthy of the name American Airlines, America's flag carrier," Tom Horton, AA’s CEO said.
