At a hearing this morning,  Judge Lane approved the consummation of the merger and the settlement between American, US Airways and the participating state attorneys general.  He soundly rejected the request to block the merger brought by individual plaintiffs (the "Alioto Plaintiffs”) who had asserted that the transaction violated the anti-trust law. He found that the Alioto Plaintiffs had presented no evidence of irreparable harm, the most critical element needed to obtain a temporary restraining order. The Judge will issue a full written decision by around noon today.
                
It is now anticipated that the merger will be completed as quickly as possible with its consummation and AA’s exit from bankruptcy to occur as early as December 9.

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 16,000 active flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading has served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she continues to advocate for American Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers. Achieving a merger inside of bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
