Late last week the Department of Justice filed an amended complaint against the proposed merger of US Airways and American Airlines. The two carriers have submitted their responses, which are available through the always excellent Airline Biz Blog at Dallas Morning News. Airline Biz Blog is also reporting that the two carriers are seeking to push back the original December 17 date by which they had planned to complete the merger. We'll have more detailed thoughts on the contents of these latest filings later in the week.
