DALLAS (AP) – A leader of a pilots union says American Airlines CEO Thomas Horton will speak to the group’s directors, who favor a merger with US Airways.

Allied Pilots Association president Keith Wilson says says Horton on Thursday is scheduled to talk about the airline’s bankruptcy restructuring.

American’s three unions favor a merger that would turn over management of the company to US Airways executives. Horton hasn’t ruled out a merger but has hinted that he might favor American emerging from bankruptcy protection on its own.

Pilots last week pilots ratified a new contract that gives them about 13 percent ownership of American’s parent, AMR Corp., after it emerges from bankruptcy.

American didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
