DOJ, Carriers Commence Antitrust Showdown by Arguing Over Trial Date

Welcome to the redesigned blog! I hope everyone likes the new look.

The top end-of-week story is that American Airlines and US Airways have filed a motion requesting a November 12 start date for their antitrust trial. This is three months earlier than the February start date the DOJ would prefer. The disagreement isn't trivial, as American cannot resolve its bankruptcy proceedings without first settling the merger question. The DOJ, by contrast, wants more time to prepare its arguments.
