There is no way a merged American Airlines and US Airways is profitable in the near term. When United and Continental merged in 2010, they spent almost $3B and 2 years later the merger hasn't been completed.Additionally, US Airways will have to raise their wage scale to American Airlines, which will hurt profitability. While a merger would create a better network and might position US Airways to a better future, I doubt it will make money.http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/02/07/dont-expect-to-profit-from-an-amr-us-airways-merge.aspx?source=itxsitmot0000001&lidx=1
