NEW YORK — United Airlines and Continental closed the deal Friday that will create the world's biggest airline.
The combined airline will be called United Airlines, with Continental's colors and globe logo on the tail. This leaves the United States with three dominant international airlines, United, Delta, and AMR Corp.'s American, and a big domestic hauler, Southwest Airlines Co.
