Attempt to block US airline merger

The US federal government and six states have taken legal action to block a merger between American Airlines and US Airways. The deal would create the world's biggest airline, worth $14bn (£9bn). The airlines were stunned by the lawsuit, which claims it would hurt competition and cost consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year in higher fares and fees.
