Judge OKs big airline merger

A federal bankruptcy judge gave approval on Wednesday for US Airways and American Airlines to proceed with their planned merger, according to a source familiar with the situation.

US Airways and American Airlines announced plans last month to join forces in an $11 billion deal to create the world's largest airline.

    I think it is not right that they weigh people before going on the plain because some people don't appreciate there weight so making they weigh themselves doesn't make them like themselves any more

    I don't think the airport should weigh people because people are not proud of there weight usually and that is personal
