US Airways and AA have just merged. Charlotte is currently US Airway's largest and most profitable hub.

Will the New Airline maintain a hub here or will it go the way of St. Louis and Cincinnati and be eliminated?

You can't really compare Charlotte with St. Louis or Cincinnati. Both of those hubs were in close proximity to other hubs when American merged with TWA or Delta merged with Northwest given their proximity to Chicago O' Hare for American Airlines and Detroit for Delta which was why they were downsized to begin with. American has a huge gap in the Southeast between Miami (which has pretty paltry domestic connections for a hub) and Philadelphia so the Charlotte hub could be pretty useful in order to fill that void.

Business is about making money. When USA finishes digesting AA, I don't see this changing. The only thing, IMO, that could affect Charlotte would be if the FAA requires the merged airline to divest flights from certain saturated hubs like CLT in order to prevent a total monopoly.

CLT continues to thrive and grow and solidify itself as one of the major hubs at low cost. Substantial capital continuing to be invested in staying ahead of traffic growth.
