WFAA: American Airlines Merger Expected Next Week

American Airlines is expected to announce a merger with U.S. Airways next week, according to Dallas affiliate WFAA.

American is not commenting but it's a move that's been in the works for more than a year.

According to WFAA's sources, it's expected that American would keep its name and remain based in Forth Worth.

Just last month, the airline unveiled a new logo.

The CEO of U.S. Airways will likely take over the leadership role if a merger is approved.
