Article Photos: Boeing defends Dreamliner, safety questions remain 1/4

In this Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 photo, an American Airlines Boeing 757 passenger jet takes off as another waits on the taxiway at Miami International Airport in Miami. Directors of American Airlines' parent company likely won't make a decision when they meet Wednesday, Jan 9, 2013, to consider a possible merger with US Airways, even as momentum for a deal is building. Investors have been bidding up US Airways' stock price, and leaders of the two pilot unions agree on how to combine contracts, two developments that analysts say strengthen the case for a tie-up.
