DALLAS (AP) — Union pilots at Texas-based American Airlines say the state attorney general’s opposition to American’s proposed merger with US Airways doesn’t make sense.

The Allied Pilots Association said in an advertisement in Monday’s Dallas Morning News that American is “a powerful economic engine” in Texas but needs the merger to compete with bigger United and Delta.

The union asks Attorney General Greg Abbott in an open letter, “Are you opposed to having a leading global carrier in Fort Worth? Considering everything at stake — including the large number of jobs and the tax revenues they generate — that doesn’t make any sense.”

Abbott’s office hasn’t responded immediately. Last week, Abbott wrote in a column for the same newspaper arguing that the merger was designed to eliminate competition and raise prices.
