On Monday, we will find out who will lead the new American Airlines when the merged carrier announces its executive team.

Sources tell News 8 that the core of the US Airways executive team will remain intact and move to American's Fort Worth headquarters.

It's uncertain how much of American's current leadership will be retained or what kind of severance package those who don't survive the cut may leave the company with.

The CEO of the new American Airlines is flying back to North Texas on Tuesday to meet with employees based here.

American is still operating under bankruptcy protection, from which it expects to emerge later this year.
