At least they realize their mistake.

The board blamed three parties: Air Midwest, which operated the plane and and was responsible for its maintenance and loading; an inspector for maintenance contractor Raytheon Aerospace; and the Federal Aviation Administration, which oversees maintenance and sets weight and balance guidelines.

So, US Airways didn't take any financial hit, lawsuits?

Air Midwest would have bore the brunt of the lawsuits, not US Airways, but in any event, everyone has insurance for things like this. Perhaps Air Midwest's insurance premiums went up a little bit. US probably suffered minimal booking away, since the media coverage generally referred to the "Air Midwest crash" and not the "US Airways crash". Of course, it's not a good idea to make a habit of these things.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
