"Be Advised, Our Pilots Always Carry Less than $20"

That would be funny if it wasn't, well, true.

"Stupid is as stupid does"

But seriously though, I think that if the America West cost stucture and mentality took over the new company, I think it could do very well.

Question: whose management is taking over?

Wow. So much negativity and attention over two airlines who apparently are worthless and stupid. So all these investors are just as stupid and are just pissing away $2b?

Could it be that you all are truly worried that it will be your airline that doesn't survive? Worried that HP/US will actually give WN and others some competition?

DCAflyboy,

Some of us, not all, are just having a little fun. I personally love this merger and I think this needs to be done. Lighten up a little bit.

I'm all for having fun.

And by the looks of things, we US employees can finally lighten up and have some fun -- fun watching high & mighty airlines deal with their own questionable futures now.

Here's to breaking out the party favors!!

Cheers.

This merger, combined with the total collapse of United (selloff of assets), and the trimming down of either Delta or AA would do a world of good to US aviation. JMHO

Discount ticket to TPA to visit Mom and Dad, $198 plus taxes.

Changing your itinerary due to uncontrolled circumstances, $100 administration fee plus $600 in fare difference.

I nominate DCAflyboy for the new CEO for US Airways. Maybe it'll disappear faster that way. God help all the combined employees of HP/US. Hey now...there's a new slogan. "Pray for US...please."  Wink Regards.

US Air press release says:,

"New airline to provide customers full-service offerings and consumer-friendly pricing structure of a low-cost low-fare carrier", says the US Airways press release.

What this really means is that an LCC has finally gone trans-Atlantic, (without reading the small print), should be great for travelers across the Pond who are used to charter flights, then a touch more room, (although you will have to pay to eat, the salty sodden mush you're used to). I WISH!!!.

Just who is absorbing who's debts, or are they just amalgamating into one giant debt?.

I just hope it works for all those that work for the companies and all that depend on them.

Andy

ps will my upgrade on US still be valid?

US Airways, where Chapter 11 is more than just a way of business, it is our only business.  Smile

America West, a sucker born every minute.  Silly

At the US PHL ticket counter. "Good morning sir. I see you are booked to fly from PHL to BOS this morning." "Now where would you like us to send your baggage?"  Confused

This actually happened to me on a trip from GSO-DFW, I connected in PIT but my bag went to CLT and sat there for a day before being sent on to DFW.
