US Airways has gained the support of unions at American Airlines for a possible merger of the airlines. While the deal is far from a sure thing, here is a look at how much money the U.S. airlines took in last year, how many miles they flew their passengers and where a combined American and US Airways might measure up.
|Airline||Revenue Passenger Miles (billions)||Operating Revenue (billions)|
|Combined American/US Airways||207.7||$37.0|
|Delta Air Lines||192.8||$35.1|
