US Airways to distribute $5.1 million to its 31,000 employees ($150 each employee)

US Airways (Phoenix) for the first time since its 2005 merger with America West Airlines, scored Number 1 in each of the on-time performance, baggage handling and customer satisfaction measures among the “Big Five” network carriers in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) May 2010 Air Travel Consumer Report. As a result, the airline will distribute $5.1 million among its 31,000 employees later this month. The airline awards $50 per metric (on time, baggage and complaints) when it places first among the larger network carriers; a “triple play” performance means each employee will receive a $150 bonus for May’s results.
