I doubt an undergrad student in his first or second year can land a internship. Many are arranged after third year (through university if they offer co-op or through career centre within university). You should also be aware you'll probably need to be a business major (business admin.).
USAir had one- it's on their website. It's for graduating MBA's, which probably rules many candidates. Check out their site http://www.usair.com/corporate/jobs/mba/

US A333 PIT, If you don't mind air frame manufacture, Boeing will be good too. Since they are looking for a lot of summer intern this year. I think most of them are engineering related, though. I don't know what kind of job you are looking for, but I believe you might have better chance at Boeing than airlners. So check it out at Boeing web site.

I have friends that have interned with AA, Airbus, ACA, Kiwi (when they were contenders) and UA. They did them in either their 3rd or 4th year of school and were arranged through the dean of our school. All of them had great experiences, none were offered employment after their internships except for the Kiwi and ACA guys.

If you're an aviation student, Delta offers an awesome flight operations internship. I'm currently participating in it, as an employee in Pilot Standards at the Atlanta World Headquarters. We get unlimited jumpseat privileges, preferred hiring at ACA/Comair, and the chance to meet a lot of great people. In the 2 weeks that I have been in my internships, I have done the following travel:
Purpose of Trip
Flight to ATL to start work
ATL-EGE (Vail, CO)-ATL
Flight Deck jumpseat
Special airport observation
LAX-HNL-OGG (Maui, HI)-LAX
Trans-oceanic operation and special airport observation
Return to work after Hawaiian trip
Trip to attend a CRJ class at Comair
Return to work (Tommorrow)
Return to work (Tommorrow)
The special airport observations relate to my work, which is to involve developing training for pilots to become qualified to fly into the special airports. Vail and Maui both require special qualification due to mountainous terrain.
There are currently 16 flight ops interns at Delta, working in various departments. If you're a pilot, and you are looking for an internship, this one is outstanding.
