CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The merger of US Airways and American Airlines has cleared its last hurdle and will become official Monday morning.
A U.S. Supreme Court Justice declined to hear a challenge to the merger from a consumer group Saturday, clearing the way for the airlines to join.
Doug Parker, CEO of the merged airline, will ring in the morning bell remotely for the new airline on the NASDAQ Monday from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport, joined by one-thousand of the company's employees.
It will trade under the new symbol AAL.
In Charlotte, Kenji Hashimoto, the Senior Vice President of regional carriers, and Terri Pope, the Vice President of the Charlotte hub, will be on hand to answer questions.
The new airline will be the country's largest. Charlotte-Douglas Airport will be the airline's second-largest hub, next to Dallas-Fort Worth.
