US Airways awarded the Charlotte-London Heathrow route, flight attendants vote to strike

US Airways (Phoenix) has announced it has been awarded operating slots to inaugurate daily, nonstop service between its Charlotte hub and London’s preferred business airport, Heathrow, beginning in March 2013. US Airways will operate the service between Charlotte and London Heathrow with Airbus A330 aircraft that features Envoy, the airline’s international business class.  Specific schedule and fare details will be released at a later date.

The new service from Charlotte, N.C. will supplement the airline’s existing daily service between its international gateway in Philadelphia and London Heathrow.

The flight will originate in Miami, offering customers in South Florida convenient one-stop service to London via the airline’s Charlotte hub.

On the flip side, US Airways’ flight attendants have voted by a 94 percent margin to authorize a strike should the continued negotiations fail according to this report by Reuters.
