A group of AMR (AAMRQ.PK) bondholders sitting on $1.5B in unsecured debt will back a deal for the carrier to merger with US Airways (LCC -2.6%), according to reports. Along with yesterday's news that the Transport Workers Union will support the airliner combination, a deal is starting to look even more imminent.

    My guess, many jobs lost, shut down of a few major stations...remember PIT for USAir & STL for TWA. PHX will loose 1000's of jobs at HDQ as well as suppliers, not a good move for the consummer as well. Labor contracts will take years to sort out.

    The PIT problem was that the airport would not negotiate a new lease so the contracts were canceled in bankruptcy and all the hub flights went elsewhere.

    My prediction is that Ft. Worth will lose a lot of jobs, as well as HP, since AMR mgmt will not be in control anymore and LCC mgmt is not a fan of outsourcing.
