The 2013 merger of American Airlines and US Airways marked a major step in the consolidation of the U.S. airline industry. A young management team that began plotting mergers a decade earlier designed a brilliant strategy to seize an industry prize.

The airlines' histories and the inside story of the takeover is told by two veteran airline reporters.
