The US Airways/American merger would create the world's largest airline.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The CEOs of American Airlines and US Airways are reassuring a Senate panel that their merger would not lead to fewer flights or lost jobs in the lawmakers' states.
They say the merger would create the world's biggest airline and provide more competition for United and Delta.
But consumer advocates told the Senate antitrust subcommittee Tuesday that the merger would lead to higher fares and less service to midsize cities.
Diana Moss of the American Antitrust Institute said American and US Airways want to compete with giant global airlines.
