    Approvals Secured – Let’s Merge

    ·Following a hearing on Monday, today the Bankruptcy Court approved two motions that allow American to take the final steps to emerge from restructuring and for us to close our merger.

    ·First, Judge Sean Lane approved American’s settlement with the DOJ and the states attorneys general that were parties to the lawsuit, finding that even with the divestitures, American can go ahead with its Plan of Reorganization (POR) and merger with US Airways. Second, Judge Lane issued a ruling that allows us to close our merger prior to the resolution of a private antitrust lawsuit that is before the Court.

    ·As a result of these rulings, AMR filed a notice with the Court, stating that the proposed effective date of the POR will be Monday, December 9.

    ·That will be an important date of celebration for our people – on that day, American will emerge from restructuring and we will legally close our merger.

    ·While we will come together as a company to mark the day, we will not be making any changes from a customer perspective until after the busy holiday season.

    ·Stay tuned for more details about timing and events for December 9, and thank you for all of your efforts to get us to today. It’s an exciting time!

    Now we can wait to find out what changes we'll soon see. Will they be reflections of whether we were good?…or bad?

    Sounds like there are some exciting changes coming up at US that will more closely align them with AA.. Perhaps we'll be in for some good luck in the coming months? :)

    nobody knows yet. Guessing for sometime late 1Q 2014 with reciprocal earning/burning before then. They'll probably announce within a few weeks.

    As there are only a couple of days left to decide, what does everyone feel about buying US miles at this stage?

    I likely won't buy any miles, but I did just sign up for the US mastercard. Comes with 30K rdms + 10K extra if you transfer a balance.

    With that and the miles from the 2011 grand slam, I'll have a nice balance transfer over to AA- CX F redemption looks to be in my future.

    No. As stated in OP: "While we will come together as a company to mark the day [December 9], we will not be making any changes from a customer perspective until after the busy holiday season." Even after they start making those changes, it is anybody's guess how high or low a specific item might be on the priority list.
