American Airlines is merging with US Airways in a not too surprising event. What does it mean for Chicago residents? Probably not much. O'Hare will still be a big hub for the new AA. There, of course, will be layoffs as the two companies get further integrated but not too many. US Airways only flies to three places out of O'Hare (Charlotte, Phoenix and Philadelphia.) Bottom line: Don't worry.
Also, American Airlines is doing a reduced award ticket sale to Hawaii. For 30,000 miles round trip in coach and ~$30 or so in taxes, you can get to Hawaii between now and March 13th.
