MONORE, La. (KNOE 8 News/CNN) - The CEO of American Airlines says its merger with United Airways shouldn't affect prices. The two airlines announced they completed the merger Monday to form the world's largest airline company.

Ceo Doug Parkers says, "Prices in our business move a lot based upon any sort of factors but this merger is not going to be one of those."

A final hurdle was cleared over the weekend when the Supreme Court declined to take up a challenge claiming the merger would lead to higher prices and fewer choices. Passengers aren't expected to see the effects of the merger until at least next year.
