I am one of the consumers that would benefit from this merger.

My primary airports: MHT (15 minutes) and BOS (1 hour).
Airline status: Lifetime AA mid-tier (Platinum)

I used to do 3 trips/month but now only about 8 trips/year. I currently fly mostly from BOS on a mix of carriers for non-stops, preferring AA when I would have to connect anyway. The merger would multiply my non-stop options on the airline I have status with from BOS and also give me some status flights from MHT.

For people like me, AA+US would have far more positives than negatives.
