A recent Philadelphia Inquirer article┬ácites Mack Institute Executive Director Saikat Chaudhuri as an authority regarding┬áthe mounting pressure on the U.S. Justice Department to approve the US Airways-American Airlines merger. In the article, Chaudhuri compares the circumstances surrounding this ongoing antitrust case with those of a similar contested acquisition from January. He expresses his viewpoint that the government’s hesitation to respond to these pressures stems from its desire to extract further concessions from the two major airlines.
