Chodorow interviewed on Sunday Square Off

September 10, 2013

Professor Adam Chodorow recently was interviewed on Sunday Square Off about the possible merger between two of the nation’s largest airlines, and a federal lawsuit being brought against them.

U.S. Airways and American Airlines announced an $11 billion merger in February, which was met with a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Justice to block the merger.

Chodorow says the Justice Department is worried the merger will leave the United States with only three ‘legacy airlines’ instead of four, which could lead to higher prices and higher service fees.

“The last merger in the door gets a lot more scrutiny than the earlier mergers,” said Chodorow, explaining why the federal government has allowed mergers in the past without issue.
