It looks like the possible merger between United Airlines and U.S. Airways has fallen apart.

Neither United nor U.S. Airways would comment on the talks, but one insider told the "New York Times" that they've been put on permanent hold.

This appears to be the second time in a month that merger talks have fallen through between United and another airline.

Discussions with Continental ended at the end of April.
