US Airways Chief Executive Doug Parker said mergers would be good for airline employees, customers and communities serviced by carriers. He did not refute reports that the airline has discussed a merger with United Airlines and has repeatedly said that US Airways will remain active on the merger front. Executives at Continental Airlines and United Airlines also said they will consider merging with other airlines.
