News Summary: Momentum building for airline merger
By The Associated Press
MOMENTUM TAKING OFF: Analysts say recent events have made a merger more likely. They cite a run-up in US Airways' stock price and a pending agreement on how pilots from the two airlines would be combined into one workforce.
WHO'S NO. 1? If there is a merger, the combined company would rival United Airlines as the world's biggest carrier while leapfrogging over No. 2 Delta Air Lines.
