American Airlines and US Airways are asking for a Nov. 12 trial, several months earlier than the Justice Department's planned trial date in February, noting the delay would "cause serious harm and cannot be justified," in a joint filing. "The request for a November trial date also reflects our strong, unwavering belief in our merger with US Airways and our legal case," said Tom Horton, CEO of American Airlines, in an e-mail to employees. "We're ready to go. It's time to remove the uncertainty for our customers, people and owners." Doug Parker, CEO of US Airways, also said the following in a letter to employees on Thursday: "As we have said before, we are mounting a vigorous and strong offense in federal court in order to bring our airlines and talented team members together as the new American. The facts support us, and we are quite confident in our quest to become the new American."
