The merger between this company will take the name of American Airlines, New York Times reported.

The merger between American Airlines and US Airways will become one of top four airlines in the United States. American Airlines and US Airways will be competing with United, Delta and Southwest. These four airlines would control more than 70 percent of the market, New York Times reported.
