American Airlines and US Airways are planning a "D.C. Fly-In" later this month for employees from both airlines to talk to lawmakers about their planned merger.

In its online employee newsletter "Arrivals", American and US Airways say during the event on September 17 and 18, 300 employees from both airlines "will visit the US Capitol to meet with senators and congressmen in an effort to directly communicate the benefits of the merger for all stakeholders."

According to the newsletter, the event "will culminate in an employee rally in the middle of Capitol Hill."

Both airlines are also encouraging their employees to write lawmakers.

The newsletter says employees can go to, where it lists the names and addresses of lawmakers.

"This is one way that you can make a real difference," the two airlines state in the newsletter. "If every one of our more than 100,000 employees of American and US Airways participates, over half a million letters will be sent to various government and elected officials across the country."
