A look at the route maps of US Airways and American Airlines shows that the merger between the two carriers is mostly complimentary. US Airways gives American a much bigger presence in key East Coast cities and gives US Airways a longer overseas reach. That’s important in an age when the market is dominated by a new breed of mega-airlines that promise to whisk passengers around the globe with ease. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)
