The Justice Department said it wants to begin the antitrust trial for the proposed US Airways and American Airlines merger in March. AMR, the parent company of American Airlines, and US Airways requested a Nov. 12 trial date and said a delay would cost the carriers. "Unnecessary delays also prevent American's financial stakeholders, which includes creditors, shareholders and employees, from realizing the benefits and improved certainty that will come from American's emergence from Chapter 11," the two carriers said in a statement.
