American Airlines / US Airways Merger Announcement Expected Next Week
Am I going to be an America Airlines elite soon? It’s looking like American and US Airways are going be announcing a merger on Monday.
Sources say US Airways CEO Doug Parker will likely take over, and American’s Tom Horton will be given an honorary position on the board.
The big questions for me are, how will upgrades work, and will American’s treatment of Elites in first class win out? (I hope upgrades work like
US AirwaysEDIT: See comments, and American’s elite status wins out).
I also feel the need to point out that American’s Tom Horton’s name always makes me crave donuts. One letter off from deliciousness.
