US Airways, American Airlines to Merge? Domain Name Purchase Seems to Suggest So

US carriers are always seemingly on the verge of financial ruin, merging or otherwise begging for government cash, but it seems two of the big name brands have plans to get it on, in a fiscal sense.

On Sunday, Domain Name Wire revealed that several domains had been purchased indicating a merger of the two carriers was perhaps imminent- but a spokeswoman for US Airways said that the purchases are a preemptive attempt to protect the brand names. Michelle Mohr commented to TheStreet:

“The purchase of these domain names, along with other potential transaction names, is simply step to ensure others do not use our marks in a way that might negatively impact our brand.”

However, Mohr also conceded that advisors have been brought on to look at a merger with American. She has said:

“Although it is not imperative that US Airways participate in further consolidation, we are interested in studying potential value-enhancing opportunities, including a possible US Airways-AMR transaction.”

According to Domain Name Wire, these are the domains recently registered suggesting a potential merger:, .net, and .org, .net, and .org (the .com was registered by someone else in 2010), .net, and .org, .net, and .org, .net, and .org, .net, and .org

American Airlines has not commented on the possibility of a merger.
