- The Department of Justice reportedly wants US Airways (LCC) and AMR (AAMRQ) to sell assets at key airports across the U.S. in order for it to approve the carriers' merger.
- In a complaint in August, the DOJ listed over 1,000 city pairings where the airlines dominate and where their tie-up could hurt competition.
- Reports last week had focused on an offer from the airlines to divest rights at Washington's Ronald Reagan National Airport, where they hold a combined 69% of takeoff and landing slots. However, the companies have also offered to sell rights at airports other than Reagan.
- If the sides can't agree to a deal, they are due to go trial on November 25.
