US Airways has dropped out of merger talks with United Airlines, perhaps clearing the way for United and Continental to get together and create the world’s biggest carrier in terms of traffic.

Neither United nor Continental would confirm reports that they are in merger talks.

Experts have said that such a combination – which is arguably a better match – would stabilise an embattled airline industry.
