(Newser) – The CEOs from United Airlines and US Airways will meet tomorrow to try to nudge ahead talks of a possible merger, the Wall Street Journal reports. If they make headway, the executives could present a possible deal to their respective boards in mid-June. The deal, in the works for two months but rumored to be in trouble recently, could easily fall through for a host of reasons, including the volatility of the industry over surging oil prices.
