Airline Merger

NPR's Jim Zarroli reports consumer groups are expressing concern about consolidation in the airline industry. Yesterday, it was reported that American Airlines is in talks to acquire TWA, and could also buy parts of US Airways. Critics say the wave of mergers could leave the country with two or three dominant carriers and could leave many consumers facing higher fares.
