UAL's United Airlines is reportedly involved in merger talks with US Airways. United told PRWeek last October that it had issued an RFP for its first AOR to handle PR and crisis communications.
Tony Cervone, who had joined United in February after leaving his post as VP of global strategy and operations at General Motors, had said that the RFP would most likely be concluded in early 2010. Now April, the drawn-out process has had us scratching our heads about the delay. It should be interesting to see if this merger pans out and how, if at all, the activity has impacted the process.
