Transcript for Goodbye to US Airways
Saying investigators showed up in an armored vehicle, smashing a gate, destroy iing potential evidence. And the merger between airlines will happen tomorrow. David Kerley with an important tip if you're flying anytime soon. Reporter: Tonight, flight 1939 -- the year U.S. Airways started -- is in the air. There were balloons, signs, and a 13-year-old who talked his parents into letting him fly the four stop final flight trip. I really wanted to be part of aviation history. Reporter: History memorialized in selfies, as the merger with American airlines is completed, creating the world's largest airline. It's been a decade of mergers. From nine airlines to now just four major carriers. Consolidation, limiting competition, which experts say will mean higher ticket prices. This is not a good thing. One of the things that keeps prices down, historically, on tickets has been competition. Reporter: American hopes to avoid problems as it merges all those reservation and computer systems, saying its employees have undergone a million hours of training to prepare. The only thing that was confusing is that we had an American ticket and they sent us to U.S. Airways. Reporter: American suggests passengers check in and print out a boarding pass at home. Before you go to the airport. Thanks.
