Department of Justice files suit to block US Airways/American Merger

I certainly didn't see this coming:


It seems as though everyone has been taking for granted the fact that the merger between these two airlines would go through with little difficulty (and maybe a few landing slots at Reagan to give up) - this was taken further by the fact the European Union approved the deal recently as well.

Now, it's all a question.

While I could go along with a notion that this is another bargaining tactic, I tend to subscribe to the idea that the government isn't usually going to get involved unless they really have to.

And if this was done at the behest of consumers, then I may not disagree with the decision.

Time will tell how this works out, but I have to believe it's not a good sign for the merger.
