US Airways in no rush to merge with AA
The CEO of US Airways says he still wants to merge with American Airlines, but he’s in no hurry.
US Airways CEO Doug Parker has been publicly pushing for a deal with American since April 20, when he won the support of American’s three unions. American filed for bankruptcy protection in November, and its executives have resisted a merger, although they have agreed with creditors to study merger options. But bankruptcy issues have stalled merger efforts. American is likely to get more time to propose its own reorganization plan. And getting new contracts with its unions is taking longer than expected.
