It’s been two years of marriage for American Airlines and US Airways.

The two carriers merged their companies on December 9, 2013 and a lot has happened since then. The new American has successfully integrated its two reservation systems, merged its frequent flier programs and negotiated new contracts with its pilots and flight attendants unions.

The Fort Worth-based company has also built a new integrated operations center and announced plans to build a new headquarters facility, less than a mile from its current location.

“We’ve been pleased with all the integration milestones so far,” said American chief executive Doug Parker. “We’ve either hit or exceeded our goals to date.”

Here’s an interactive look back at the past two years at the new American.
