The Justice Department is investigating the airline Web site currently being created by five major carriers for antitrust implications.


The "supersite" is being developed by American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines and United Airlines as a hub where travelers can purchase tickets and get travel information.
