There is much speculation that US Airways and AA will merge. IF it does happen, what hubs/cities will lose, which ones will gain and which will stay the same?

Well, US Air is based in Tempe, AZ, and American is based in Fort Worth. Reports are that if US Air takes over American, they will remain based in Fort Worth and Tempe would be a hub. Not sure about all the other hubs.

That's a big IF, but should a merger go through, it will lead to a very interesting network. AA Hubs at ORD, DFW,NYC, MIA & LAX. USAir Hubs are in PHX,PHL,CLT. Not sure I'd change anything in that if I was running the new airline. I could see CLT losing transalatic feeder traffic to DFW or MIA. PHX may pick up more south/ central american flights. I think a combined AA/US would have a better network in the west and southeast then AA does now. USAir would benefit from AA's South American routes.

The really interesting thing is which airline alliance would a combined AA/US fall into - Star Alliance or One World?

I think DFW is the perfect hub for an international airline, PHX is a western focused hub which doesn't really do much for anyone living east of Colorado/New Mexico. That being said congestion and competition at DFW means PHX will still have a role for leisure traffic, but DFW will be the business hub in most cases.
