Breaking: Justice department approves United - Continental merger
The Department issued a statement that they had investigated the proposed merger and agreed to it after the two airlines were willing to give up some airport slots to Southwest Airlines for use at Newark Airport.
According to the New York Times, the next step is shareholder approval on September 17. If that hurdle clears, it'll be several weeks till the two formally become one.
Next week, we'll take a closer look what the merger means for passengers, and what kind of changes you can expect if you fly these airlines.
