I was a Passenger Service Supervisor at USAirways Express from 1991 to 1998 at a station unfortunate enough to have most of our service to/from the PHL hub and I can't believe that the situation I encountered daiily in dealing with that cursed station hasn't not only not improved, but from the sound of things, it's gotten SO much worse!!

1/ Headquarters have been moved to Tempe, in Phoenix, a non long haul US Airways/America West gateway. Why was that?
What does being a long haul gateway have to do with where HQ is? US' previous HQ before was outside DCA . . also not a longhaul gateway.

Is there any particular reason they can't fire the people who don't show up to their shifts? Or the ones that duck out?
Money IS the issue. It boggles my mind that someone like Parker -making his 5.7 million + -would sit there in his ivory tower and say that 9.59 an hr was "market rate" and was acceptable and couldn't possibly be the problem!
You get what you pay for.

they're using the name US because they felt it was better known ..
It was - and not in a good way at all. USAirways didn't have the best reputation going into this whole merge (ie bankruptcies, accidents, bad service, labor problems, PHL!!) - - the name should have been completely done away with and another one thought up - for a completely fresh new start.

With the A350 situation going no where fast they should get all the A330-200 they can and think about the A350 as something ten years from now.
Or start thinking about Boeing again. Keeping all their eggs in the Airbus basket for their future growth isn't particularly smart - especially with all the woes at Airbus at the moment!
