An announcement on American Airlines' new management team is expected Monday.
The merger of US Airways and American Airlines won't be finalized for another few months, but the airline's new management team is set to be announced on Monday.
US Airways' CEO Doug Parker, who will lead the new airline, is expected to bring many of his top executives from the Tempe, Arizona, carrier to Fort Worth.
The management shakeup has long been rumored since Parker and his team were successful in their bid to merge with the larger but bankrupt American.
While Parker has denied it was a takeover, he clearly won the battle to head the new airline, which will become the world's largest and continue to be based in Fort Worth.
Outgoing American Airlines' executives will get severance packages, which have been in the works for many weeks one insider told NBC DFW.
Outgoing American CEO Tom Horton's proposed $20 million severance has drawn criticism and has not won final approval.
