Airline merger can cause problems for Philly airport

Posted: Mar. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Although it may sound like a good idea, some Philadelphia locals are sure concerned with the new merging of the two airlines. US Airways passengers wondered if the merger would mean steeper fares and more crowded flights. I guess we will have to wait and see the outcome whether it’d be good or bad.

PHILADELPHIA — — The planned merger of US Airways and American Airlines could have implications for Philadelphia International Airport, possibly increasing the number of international flights and creating more jobs, officials said.

Philadelphia is a hub for US Airways, which announced earlier in the day that it would merge with American in an $11 billion deal to form the world’s largest airline.
