Delta tries to decide if it should buy US Airways or American Airlines
Delta Air Lines is considering making a bid to buy US Airways Group, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. US Airways is reported to have been searching for partners.
However, the news comes in the same month as press reports pointed to a possible takeover by the Atlanta-based Delta of AMR Corp, the struggling parent company of another major US carrier, American Airlines, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. Delta is reportedly undecided as to which of the two airlines it should make a bid for, insiders say.
