Here is the quote I was looking for-
So what comes next? Our operations will not change immediately. We expect it will take six months or so to secure all of the necessary regulatory, stockholder and bankruptcy court approvals required for the merger to close, and during that time we will continue to operate as separate airlines.
I'm assuming that when the merger is complete, I'll get to merge my US Airways and AAdvantage accounts, right? I'd like that. It would give me about 600K AA points, perfect for a number of redemptions through OW.
A liitle bit old, but still relevant, I think.

The interesting part for me is that the merger goes to a vote by AMR's creditors and then back to the judge for final approval "this summer".
The US Airways route map is phenemonal. I'm very much looking forward to their routes being incorporated into the AA fray for my next oneworld Explorer.
