American Air Merger Revealed? False Rumor Secrets

People in the milleage community have been abuzz over an alleged clue towards a potential American Airlines and US Air merger. The clue was a Star Alliance logo in an alleged Apple marketing material using an AA logo (US is in Star, but not AA). In truth though, it was simply a hoah using a cleverly modified real Apple marketing material. Notice that everything down to the seat and destination is the same except for the logo and flight code (easily modifiable using the stamp tool in photoshop). The font in the notification was also too small. It could also have just been some improperly modified legit marketing material by an Apple employee. Nonetheless, it is fake.
