US Airways says retiring three types of aircraft
ARLINGTON, Va., Sept 25 (Reuters) - US Airways Group
Airlines have been slashing their schedules and cutting jobs as travel demand falls following the attacks.
On Sept. 17, U.S. Airways said it would cut about 11,000 jobs and reduce its capacity by 23 percent due to the events on Sept. 11.
US Airways said it would retire a total of 111 aircraft from its fleet by April. The move will affect its B-737-200s, MD-80s and F-100s aircraft. US Airways uses the B-737-200 for its MetroJet system, and its retirement will lead to the end MetroJet service by December.
