In Washington, a House Judiciary Committee hearing was held where executives from both carriers and industry experts addressed how the proposed merger affects competition in the airline industry.
"I know that many members of Congress are skeptical of promises made in these situations and also concerned about industry concentration," American's general counsel, Gary Kennedy, said in remarks prepared for the hearing and released on Monday. "As to the former, we do not intend to make commitments that we cannot keep. And as to the latter, it is clear that this merger does not create a high degree of concentration."
