Burgess Statement on American Airlines Merger
Dr. Burgess released the following statement after American Airlines and US Airways announced their merger agreement:
"Yesterday, American Airlines and US Airways officially announced their merger agreement and will operate under the American Airlines name. As a major employer in North Texas the merger will be good for the employees and passengers, and will offer almost 1,000 daily departures from Texas while employing over 24,000 people. As a frequent flyer I've certainly come to realize that their employees are one their greatest assets and the stability the merger will offer is welcomed."
