WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- American Airlines and US Airways are closer to becoming the world's largest air carrier.

But, the court did not authorize a proposed $20 million severance package for American's CEO.

The deal still needs to be signed off by Justice Department anti-trust regulators and US Airways shareholders.
