Hi everybody, I have some questions on this sentence, to be sure that I have it understood corectly.
" In the clearest indication yet that things are improving in America's creaking airline industry,US Airways launched an 8 billion dollars hostile takeover of Delta.
1)What is the meaning of yet and creaking?
2) to launch means to introduce?
3) what does it mean approach= merger?
Sorry about the delay this time. Approach does not mean merger. Approach has several meanings, depending on the context. You can look it up on an online dictionary. Merger means a blending or coming together or joining, again probably easier to look it up. They are not he same.
