US Airways, AMR Talks Said to Intensify as Deadline Looms

US Airways Group Inc.’s merger talks with bankrupt American Airlines are intensifying as the sides try to agree on control of a combined company before confidentiality accords expire next week, people familiar with the matter said.

No decisions have been made on how ownership would be split between creditors of American parent AMR Corp. and US Airways investors or who would lead the carrier, said four of the people, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.
