American Airlines parent AMR expects to emerge from bankruptcy and complete its merger with US Airways on December 9, the companies said Wednesday. The two companies, which are merging to become the "American Airlines Group," said a US bankruptcy court Wednesday approved the merger of the two US airlines. Common shares for American Airlines will trade under the "AAL" ticker on Nasdaq starting the following Monday. Momentum behind the plan to create a third US air giant to compete with Delta Air Lines and United Continental Holdings picked up considerably after the Justice Department on November 12 announced a settlement to resolve an antitrust complaint that had sought to block the AMR-US Airways merger.
By Peter Griffiths LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday dismissed the Scottish government's vision of how the country would look if it votes for independence next year, accusing nationalists of ducking the biggest policy questions. Speaking in the UK parliament in London, Cameron said the 670-page blueprint for independence lacked credibility and failed to give detailed answers about an independent Scotland's future currency or its role in the European Union and NATO. "We were just left (with) a huge set of questions." Britain's three main UK-wide political parties oppose Scotland's independence, arguing that the country of 5 million people would be less prosperous and less secure on its own. Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP), which dominates the devolved Scottish parliament, says it could thrive if it took the historic step.
