AA, US now have one AWB

AMERICAN Airlines and US Airways combine their cargo departments under a single air waybill. This is the first operations division at the airline to be fully integrated following the merger. 
“Today is the culmination of a lot of hard work by our cargo employees,” says Jim Butler, president of American Airlines Cargo. “As of today, all booking channels are open and cargo customers have access to flights across the combined network of the world’s largest airline.”
“Becoming one cargo organisation less than a year after we legally closed our merger is a tremendous achievement,” added Robert Isom, chief operating officer of American Airlines.
