........an online store?
I was just messing around the site and discovered the company store. From aircraft models to T-shirts to pens to mousepads, the store has everything "U" could ever want. Why is US the only major airline that has one of these? Doesn't the cost of having such a vast product line outweigh the money made on the two to three items
sold each day?

USAir once had a store with USAir logo items at several hub airports. I'm positive of DCA and LGA, but I'm sure other northeast hubs as well. I never understood how they could keep it open because someone had to man it and they had to pay lease for it to the airport, but it evetually closed.
I can see why they have it online now. It costs nothing to have it on their website, and they need to produce the things anyway for promotions and employees.
I'm an owner of a USAir hat from the USAir store in DCA.

Back a few years ago when there was a store in CLT,I remember when the die-cast DC-3's painted in USAirways predecessor paint schemes came out a few years ago. Employees in CLT must've bought about a thousand of them,especially Piedmont. Everyone was carrying big boxes on the way out to the parking lots. Real nice pieces. Got mine!

From time to time CO has sold a few items on their website, but nothing compared to what they carry in their employee stores at IAH, HQS,(CO's internal code for its Smith St. headquarters in downtown Houston) EWR, and CLE.
