American Airlines and US Airways Merger
The merger of American Airlines and US Airways is going to create the world's largest airline (by number of miles flown per passenger); the merged airline will carry the American Airline name. This also means that the companies' frequent flyer programs will be merged into one program. For some deliberations on how this merger may be beneficial, or not, read the article in the New York Times, for which Brian Kelly from ThePointsGuy.com was interviewed.
