The company is currently US Airways in the composition with its subsidiaries operates the air park, with more than 600 mainline and regional aircraft.

US Airways company has its origins in 1939 year when Du Pont brothers organized a network of postal traffic. 10 years later specialization of the company has changed, and changed e-mail transport on scheduled passenger flights.

In 1970-1990-years of constant changes taking place in the company. These years were marked by ups and downs in US Airways operations. At one time the company provided its passengers with such a low level of service quality, which even got insulting nickname Agony Air, which translated to English means Agony Air.

The situation in the company gradually stabilized. In 2000, the company's management replaced all outdated aircraft models with modern airliners equipped with the latest technology. However, in connection with the terrorist attacks that thundered on September 11, and the ensuing financial crisis, the company had to save on literally everything in order to survive in the prevailing conditions. Pension programs for certain groups of pilots were canceled, and free meals for passengers had to be abandoned on domestic flights. Only by 2005 did the company recover from the financial crisis and began to establish its activities.

First of all the company's management has tried to establish quality of service - again organized free meals passengers revised list of services provided during the trip, organized training courses stewards.

In recent years, the company's aircraft have operated more than 3000 flights daily and their number has grown steadily. However, the passenger service was still considered one of the worst in the United States, and the services provided on board during the flight left much to be desired. Undoubtedly, it is gratifying that the high professionalism of the US Airways pilots has always guaranteed a safe flight.

Impressed that all US Airways employees are proud of what came to work in such a prestigious company. Not the slightest confusion for all time. Punctuality them above all else. As I fly often enough, and I had a conflict with a flight attendant, but I'm sure this is an isolated case in their practice of it so as much as I have not seen this person.

Flew flight from America. From a free meal for the whole road was given only drinks, but overall picture of the company remains positive. If predicted such a trip be sure to buy them a ticket.

I will try to describe my impressions of the flight as accurately as possible. The work of pilots on a hard five, stewardesses on a four with a minus, and the food so barely reaches the top three, but that's all the positive qualities of the flight for me over. Salon disgusting! Such a feeling that in a year we will be standing flying so that more people can be accommodated in the salon! The city did not take the plane because of a strong fog, but when we did sit passengers did not let out more than two hours from the salon. After that, we were unloaded with things and told that those who wish can get to their destination on their own! It could be done either by taxi or by train, to which it was also necessary to get by car for a very substantial amount of money! Most people have to wait at the airport, but after a couple of hours the pilot said that there will not be a sortie yet, but buses will soon arrive and take us to the representatives of the travel company. Understand, of course, you can all and bad weather conditions and incompetence of the company in some matters, but in this situation you absolutely do not understand what to do. Now for a long time I will not trust this airline.

Heavily hit with this airline. We ordered tickets Beijing-Shanghai, and only three hours from Beijing should fly to Moscow. As a result the flight was delayed for more than five hours. At the same time, we did not bother to inform anybody about the delay. The passengers all the time sat on the "low start" thinking that is about to begin registration. Contact the responsible persons and in general any information to provide flatly refused. Only a half hour of our scandal, we were given a piece of paper confirming the flight delay.
As a result, after more than five hours of waiting we returned luggage and decided to fly on another flight, namely directly from Shanghai to Moscow by Aeroflot. And we waited for the return of luggage one and a half hours (each time we were told that everything is now, and not have to wait more than twenty minutes). As a result, missed the first flight of Aeroflot.
Throughout the night we spent at the airport, and the next day in the morning we finally flew Aeroflot. Of course, airfare rolls over, but we had no choice.
With regard to compensation of costs, they promised us earlier, no one gave us a contact. Employees simply ignore, phone dials, in general, there are no words. Domestic flights, I do not trust more, since it is nothing like a lottery. If you lose, it is necessary to choose for themselves, so I recommend to take a lot of money.
Strongly recommend!
