Quoting Avek00 (Reply 136):
Based upon what antitrust legal theory?
It's not based upon theory, it is based upon common sense and rationale.
That's just not how large-scale corporate mergers are evaluated by DOJ regulators. If regulators cannot bring forth an argument to justify blocking a merger based on a sound antitrust legal theory buttressed by the facts, the DOJ decision has zero chance of withstanding federal appellate review.

THERE ARE NO MERGER TALKS BETWEEN DELTA AND UNITED TAKING PLACE.
Just because they said so doesn't make it so!
Unless Anderson is ready to go to prison, it is so for the time being.

Of course their denying the talks. That's how these things work.
As an attorney (according to your profile), I'd expect you of all people to understand that corporate officers simply cannot lie about material events like a merger.
Can they refuse to confirm or deny rumors? Yes. Can they acknowledge talks? Sure. But outright lie about negotiations? Absolutely not.
