Texas Withdraws From Lawsuit Blocking American-US Merger

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is to support the proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways. Abbott reached an agreement with American parent AMR and US Airways Group under which the new American Airlines will maintain scheduled daily service to more than twenty airports in Texas. In addition, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport would be maintained as a large hub airport for the combined airline while the new American would maintain its headquarters in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The State of Texas had previously joined the US Department of Justice as a co-plaintiff in its pending suit to block the merger of American Airlines and US Airways, but the Texas Attorney General has agreed to withdraw his participation in the lawsuit.
