American Airlines and US Airways are planning to form one of the world's biggest airlines, according to media and newswire sources.

The merger will bring American Airlines closer in value to rival Delta Airlines, with an estimated market valuation of $11bn (£7bn).

Aviation expert, Scott Richardson Brown, said the merger should be better for the creditors and consumers.
