CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Attorneys general from 19 states are reviewing the proposed merger between US Airways and American Airlines. North Carolina is not part of the antitrust review, even though Charlotte is a major hub for US Airways.South Carolina is part of it. The review allows attorneys general to look out for their state's interests and be a part of meetings as the Justice Department decides whether to approve the merger. The companies announced in February that they planned to merge in a deal that would create the biggest airline in the world.Members of Congress have raised concern that if combined, American and US Airways would control about 70 percent of the takeoff and landing slots at Reagan National Airport outside Washington, D.C.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
