New American Airlines to emerge as deal closes

Posted:

American Airlines and US Airways have completed their merger and now rank as the world's biggest airline.

The American Airlines name will live on, while the name US Airways will disappear.

The merger survived a challenge from the government and criticism from consumer groups, who fear it will lead to higher prices.

Over the weekend, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg denied a last-ditch effort by a group of travel agents and consumers to stop the merger.

American serves Sioux Gateway Airport through its subsidiary, American Eagle.
