Huntsville Airport’s Plan to Stem Effects of Proposed Airline Merger
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A federal judge has ruled that the federal government’s lawsuit to block the proposed merger between American Airlines and US Airways will begin November 25.
The U.S. Justice Department had pushed for the trial to begin in March to have enough time to prepare for the case.
The two airlines had previously requested a November start date saying that a later trial would cause a ‘strain’ on the dealings.
The potential merger is a legitimate concern for Huntsville International Airport specifically when it comes to airline slot divestitures in Washington, D.C.
