If American and US Airways combine, it would create the world's biggest airline as measured by passenger traffic, although United Continental Holdings Inc. would still be slightly bigger if regional operations such as United Express and American Eagle are counted.

On Friday, US Airways pilots ratified an agreement covering their pay and working terms if there is a merger. That was the last major piece to fall into place on the labor side for a merger to occur. American Airlines pilots approved a similar agreement in December. All three of American's unions support a merger that would result in US Airways management running the new company.

The committee representing unsecured creditors in AMR's bankruptcy case had planned to meet Monday.
