ATLANTA (AP) -- The Associated Press has learned that United Airlines and Delta Air Lines have been discussing a possible combination of the nation's second- and third-largest carriers. The possible combination would keep the United name and headquarters in Chicago.

A source says the talks have been going on for some time and continued recently. The details of a possible transaction are not clear.

The official says one possible scenario involves having Delta CEO Richard Anderson become the chief of the combined airline.
