• Potential merger between major airlines closer to reality


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A potential merger between American Airlines and US Airways is closer to reality.

    All three of American’s big unions have now agreed to merger terms.

    If the two airlines were to join, those employees would see an immediate 4.3 percent raise.

    An official announcement on the merger could come sometime in the next two weeks.

    US Airways has a major hub in Charlotte.
