WASHINGTON (AP) - Pilots for US Airways are suing to have an arbitrator settle a standoff with American Airlines pilots over seniority rights as the two carriers are combined.

The US Airways pilots say they have been unable to agree with the pilots’ union at Fort Worth-based American on how to combine their groups. They’re trying to invoke a federal law that requires arbitration to settle seniority disputes.

Pilots with more seniority earn more by flying bigger planes on more lucrative routes.

The US Airline Pilots Association last week sued US Airways, American Airlines, and the Allied Pilots Association at American. The new parent company of both airlines, American Airlines Group Inc. declined comment Tuesday.
