CNN -- The merger between American Airlines and US Airways has been given the go-ahead.
After the Supreme Court refused to hear a request from a consumer group that wanted to block the deal.
The group feared the merger would raise ticket prices, and limit customers' choices.
American and US Airways could complete the deal - which would create the world's biggest airline -- before markets open Monday.
