With this whole HP/US merger in the works what do you think the future holds for PHX? I am hoping that we get some International carriers here but I am afraid that is more wishful thinking on my part. What I wouldn't give to have LH back here. But who knows maybe it will happen.

I think, Lufthansa will return to PHX eventually, whether the new US Airways will remain in the Star Alliance or not. Phoenix is a thriving city, and it will continue to grow. At some stage the local O&D traffic alone will be sufficient to warrant nonstop service from Lufthansa's FRA hub. Just because LH pulled out does not mean that they don't monitor the development there anymore. Philly also lost LH service a long time ago, and years later it was reinstated.
I would also expect US Airways to launch a few transoceanic routes in a few years from now, in addition to the new Hawai'i service, which has been announced already.
