American Airlines & U.S. Airways Merger Discussions

(AP) U.S. Airways Group Inc. said it has made deals with the three unions at American Airlines.

The contracts would cover American Airlines workers if there's a merger with US Airways. However, U.S. Airways says no deal on a merger has been made.

American is reorganizing under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Its executives have said they want to emerge from bankruptcy as a stand-alone airline.

U.S. Airways says the deals are with the Transport Workers Union, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, and the Allied Pilots Association.
