Is US Airways too big to fail? Do you think that it will slim down services, like TWA, get stronger, or will it be absorbed by UA? Do you think that there will be a airline called US Airways by 2010?

You stirring the pot again? Your question sounds like a thinly disquised paraphrasing of one posed on a recent Knight-Ridder article. Another 14 year old know-it-all, but to your credit you did admit your lack of recent knowledge on the "they're going bankrupt because they have too many types of planes" post. I'm seriously debating leaving this BB as it has become overrun in the last week by newbies who spout off authoritatively about what they have no first hand knowledge (or second hand for that matter) about. --- "XYZ airlines sucks because the have planes that are over 3 months old"-- "The DZQ model of airplane really should be retired because that squiggly thing on their tail is ugly and my Aunt Ida was delayed because they had to change a tire on one"--- As other "insiders" have earlier left due to the same reason I knever knew why till now. **** No offense meant to like mided members of ALL ages.**** I just HAD to get this off my chest!

Sorry, I just got a tidbit in my email from someone, and it didn't include the Author, title, etc. Does anyone have a link to the article? That reminds me, my friend came on yesterday with my password and posted something about US Air going bankrupt? All he knows about aviation is one book of fleets, and what I tell him. I KNOW that US Airways wont go bankrupt for at least 5-10 years. To tell him your opinion of his knowledge of aviation, send it to mikegarden117@yahoo.com

So, in your two days on airliners.net, you have already "lent" a password to a friend? Does your friend not realize that membership on airliners.net is free?

No, I use the exact same password on everything except my email, and Mike already knows that.

You should keep your passwords to yourself so that you don't get hurt. If someone should write something offensive, or in another way defy the rules of this forum such that the Administrators would want to take your account away, saying it was someone else using your password would not be an acceptable excuse, 14 years old or not. Don't take it as "lambasting," take it as good advice.

I wasn't talking about you, DLX. Sorry! Although I do not think that one should freely distribute their password to anyone, in this case the friend already would have known because he knows Philaman's passwords anyway. He does need to change it and have his friend get another one if he wants to go on the forum.

I'm a little sadened to see US Airways go into the grips of United. I've been a proud and satisfied customer of USAir and US Airways for over 12 years. It's too bad too see this happen. I don't think that there will be a US Airways in even 1 year since them and UAL signes their little agreement. Oh well, might as well try to fly US Airways as much as possible before it's all UAL.

First, don't give up on USAirways just yet; I'd not be shocked if DOJ rejects the merger yet.

My experience w/ USAir is limited, but has been generally favorable, w/ a couple of caveats.

One experience (old, but it stands out) involved a trip IAH-Islip (sorry I don't know the code..), x PIT. Departure delayed because of gate-hold (ATC computers down, they were using broadband radar for flight separation, lucky controllers!). Finally allowed to take off, the pilots poured it on and made up a lot of the delay, but... Arrived PIT precisely at the time the flight to Long Island was scheduled to leave; FA's assisted us in getting off of the plane quickly, we RAN to the gate, and stumbled up panting, to a smiling gate agent, who said "You must be the Cutlers. We've been waiting for you." And they had.

We stepped onto the plane, the door closed, and we pushed back, slightly late (sorry to other pax), but very much impressed.

Oh, and (of course) the luggage did not make the change- so when it arrived on the next flight, US paid a cab driver to bring it out to us (in Southampton- a LONG WAY).

I'm not entirely sure you can beat that.

By the same token, on the trip back, we flew out of JFK, and the reservation agent did not tell us that the flight to PHL (connection) was on a commuter- a Shorts (as in, if you fly on one of these pieces of cr*p, you'll soil yours). Without a doubt, the most miserable excuse for an airline trip ever. But the PHL-IAH leg was fine.

So, my general impression is good.

But, last thought, I still marvel at the speed and efficiency with which US destroyed the value of what they had purchased after buying PSA. They (and AA, with its AirCal acquisition) paved the way for WN's California near-dominance.

For what all that's worth.

I have had all good experiences on US Air/US Airways. I have flown them many times jax-msp 3x, and jax-sfo x2 and jax-lax x2. Their food is excellent, their 757s are real nice and their flight attendants are very nice. My family has flown them also and have recieved similar service. I would put them up there with CO. The only reason I dont fly them is cause of their lack of presence on the west coast and its a real bi*** to connect in Pittsburg, Philadelphia or Charlotte even to go to San Francisco which I travel quite frequently.
