    Shares of U.S. Airways (LCC) move up 2.5% in premarket trading after a bankruptcy judge approves the carrier's merger with American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK). The combined airline will be the largest in the U.S. with over 6.7K daily flights and revenue of close to $40B when the merger is completed sometimes during Q3. What to watch: Analysts project close to $1B in synergies will be created from the deal but a real wildcard in airline mergers lies behind the scenes where reservations systems frequently don't get along with each other so well.

    Airlines for America, a trade group that represents large carriers, has said that its members don't have any plans to cancel or postpone flights because of the expected closure of 148 air-traffic control towers. The FAA announced the closures on Friday as part of its program to save $627M because of sequestration. The cost cuts will also affect major airports such as Chicago's O'Hare, where controllers will be required to work fewer hours per month.

    The International Air Transport Association increases its forecast for 2013 airline profits to $10.6B from $8.4B due to improved global economic prospects. Passenger demand is seen growing during the year by 5.4%, up from IATA's previous call for a 4.5% rise. Higher jet fuel prices will partially offset revenue gains, according to the agency.

    Airlines (FAA) would like to implement a new travel industry booking system which will allow consumers to buy add-ons such as upgraded seats or early boarding when they book flights through a travel website or agent. Trade group IATA filed an application with the DOT seeking an upgrade and to move forward on replacing the antiquated system.

    The U.S. Trustee, which oversees bankruptcies, has objected to the $19.9M severance package that AMR (AAMRQ.PK) CEO Tom Horton will receive as part of the airline's merger with U.S. Airways (LCC). The Trustee said in a court filing that AMR hasn't established that the package complies with bankruptcy law.

    IATA says passenger air travel rose 2.7% Y/Y in January, a mark which is higher the 2.2% gain in capacity. The agency says a calendar effect may have influenced the total with travel linked to the Chinese New Year falling in the period last year to boost results. International air travel was up 3.7% and domestic air travel rose 1.1% compared to last year.
