WASHINGTON - Employees of US Airways and American Airlines hosted a rally Wednesday on Capitol Hill in support of the merger, the airline companies said.
Pilot and flight attendant union leaders were among those present and argued the merger is important for jobs and global air travel.
The lawsuit was launched against the merger saying it violates the Anti-Trust Law.
The Justice Department says the deal would result in the creation of the world's largest airline and that a combination of the two companies would reduce competition for commercial air travel in local markets and would result in passengers paying higher airfares and receive less service.
The trial is set for Nov. 25.
