Quote: Mutzabaugh: Ok, so let's start with our first reader question. We've actually heard this topic from many readers. They note that US Airways has rarely been mentioned in recent United and Continental statements regarding the new United-Continental alliance.
So, from what you know, will US Airways continue to be a partner in Star Alliance? Or, does this indicate a change down the road?
Atkinson: It does not indicate a change – now or down the road. US Airways is a valued member of Star Alliance. They're a valued member in the U.S., as part of Star Alliance. They help to round out the network. I think when you put together Air Canada, United Airlines, Continental and US Airways, we really do have an unrivaled national network ... that speaks to best in class.
Here is the thread again. Continue the discussion here.
Personally I see US staying in the Star Alliance for many more years to come, and also CO will be a great addition, just what Star needed. (another great airline)
