- A federal judge sets a Nov. 25 trial date for the Justice Department's antitrust challenge to US Airways' (LCC) proposed merger with American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK).
- The airlines had pressed for an early trial, citing "steep costs and burdens" associated with the uncertainty over their future, while the government wanted a March start.
- Today's hearing gave some hints about how the sides are preparing for the trial: US Airways and American likely will argue the merger would allow them to shore up weaknesses in their networks that make them less attractive to business travelers.
