What drove U.S. Air to rebrand themselves to U.S. Airways in the mid 1990s? I know it’s simple question but Google is being no help. I highly doubt the CEO or President just woke up one day and decided it’s high time to rebrand an airline. How long did it the rebranding take?
Hello Everybody, AA operated a hub in STL from 2001 to 2009, but that is all I know. So, I have a few questions. 1.) How many flights did AA operate at their peak? I know the first major draw-down occurred in late 2003 and 2004, 50% flights were cut along with Honolulu and Gatwick. How many flights ...Jump to post
I’m shocked mainline ramp doesn’t handle BNA. It’s currently contracted out to Envoy. RDU was also handled by Envoy before the merger. I don't know who does it know since U.S. Airways ramp was mainline before the merger. Does anybody know what the number of mainline flights a station operates befor...Jump to post

Hello Everybody, Once the merger between American and TWA was completed in December 2001 I was wondering how long it took American to repaint the planes, replace the interiors and, any other branding that might have needed to be taken care of? I suspect any plans they had to retire the brand as quic...Jump to post

I personally would have hoped that the 1994 livery would still be flying but, let's be honest it wouldn't. I think it would be a billboard TWA on the side and in the back ground the global close to the 94 livery. Tail would still have the horizontal TWA as well.Jump to post
Hello everybody, I was going through some random pages in the back catalog of this forum from 2004-2005 and, one consistent topic that kept coming up was U.S. Airways was on its deathbed and it was days away from shutting down. I knew they were having some serious financial problems but, I didn't kn...Jump to post
