MERGER: US and AA Dec 9 2013 implications for AA flyers (new)

The arguments and discussion pro- and con- the possible airline merger, a reverse takeover of AA by US, are over.

The US Department of Justice's objections have been satisfied, the bankruptcy court has approved, a joint airlines committee has been working behind the scenes for some time, etc. The merger is scheduled to occur 9 December 2013, and it has been stated no major changes impacting passengers will be forthcoming during the holiday period.

Mr. Doug Parker, US' CEO, previously the HP (America West) CEO who headed HP's reverse takeover of US, will be CEO of what is being touted as "the new American", headquartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

This new thread has been opened to discuss the ramifications and impact of the merger on, currently, AA flyers.

Please: keep it respectful, on topic and free of dilatory content disruptive to the topic.


N.B. The previous discussion thread regarding a putative merger, pros, cons, DOJ actions, etc., "AA - US Merger Agreement / Announcement / DOJ Action Discussion (consolidated)"can be found here.
