Surely, "Have announced plans to" - with the caveat that it needs a couple of rubber stamps first.
Regardless of the consumer angle, the idea that there will be fewer planes in the air with the abolition of shared routes for these two airlines, that has to be a positive step.

They're both US airlines so won't have any problems IMO. The last two to get together, Delta/Northwest, happened without any problem and they had union difficulties to sort out as well.
