The US airline to watch – US AirwaysBy IAG | December 10th, 2012 | Posted in Aviation News | 1 Comment
It is frequently the major US airline people tend to overlook. It is quieter and goes about its business with little fanfare. But its Airbus' biggest customer and that alone should ensure it deserves more industry respect. US Airways just announced its November 2012 numbers. RPMs for November 2012 were 4.8bn, +4% vs November 2011. ASMS were 5.7bn, +2.5% versus November 2011. Load factor was a record 85.1 % for November 2012, +1.3 points versus November2011.
One group that has not missed the US Airways performance are the pilots at American – which stated they remain focused on merging the airlines. Guess who they want running the combined airline?
