American Airlines might make a decision within weeks about whether to pursue a merger, the Financial Times newspaper reported Sunday, citing Tom Horton, chief executive of the airline's parent company, AMR Corp. (AAMRQ).

Mr. Horton said a merger with U.S. Airways Group Inc. (LCC) remains a possibility, the report said. "It may be an attractive option under the right circumstances," the FT quoted him as saying.
