Although antitrust regulators have become more tough in recent times about not approving major mergers, they are likely to authorize AMR's (AAMRQ.PK) deal with US Airways (LCC), experts reckon. The tie-up involves only around a dozen overlapping routes, which the government hasn't regarded as a problem in the past. And regulators could force the new airline to sell landing slots at airports where its presence would be too big.

    There are plenty of alternative airlines for regulators to block it. This is not British Airways.
