As an American Airlines and US Airways merge, Peter shares new information about what will now become the world’s largest U.S. airline, worth an estimated $11 billion. The merged airline will retain the name American Airlines and will still be based in Dallas.

Beyond the airline politics, large airlines aren’t always a good thing for consumers. One change to expect will be a decrease in smaller domestic routes as airlines favor higher-yielding domestic routes. However, American Airlines and US Airways currently only overlap on about 13 different domestic routes.

Watch Peter’s CBS This Morning report to see the final implications of the American Airlines and US Airways merger and what’s to come for the airlines and the consumers.
