JetBlue Shuns AMR Merger Talks as CEO Seeks No Deals

JetBlue Airways Corp. has “no interest” in a merger with AMR Corp.’s bankrupt American Airlines and hasn’t received a document that would allow an exchange of confidential information between the carriers.

After being identified by AMR last month as likely to get a non-disclosure agreement, JetBlue has held no talks with the larger airline about a combination, Chief Executive Dave Barger said yesterday in an interview at Bloomberg’s headquarters in New York.
