    Except that date is when the merger becomes official ie passing all US regulators scrutiny.There are reports that it could be 2015 before everything is consolidated into the one airline.So merging of the FF programs may be 12 months away.

    Re: American Airlines and US AIrways merger approved

    Here is the quote I was looking for-
    Horton: It

    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.

    That's assuming they both place the same value on their miles.

    A liitle bit old, but still relevant, I think.

    Huffington Post

    NEW YORK — American Airlines won bankruptcy court approval Wednesday to combine with US Airways and form the world's biggest airline.
    I take HLO seriously!

    Here is is one of the more substantive merger articlesaround:

    In other words: nothing is likely to happen 'fast'.

    That kind of confirms what I have always thought, who ever sees mergers happenning quickly, some take years to complete. I think we'll be taking *A flights using US points for a while yet!

    American Chooses Citi As Post-Merger Credit Card Issuer; Judge Sends Merger Plan to Vote | The Points Guy

    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.
