In the current US Airways onboard magazine the airline pays tribute to its past with an article on its heritage logojets (Click on the Slide Show above to see all of the logojets):
US Airways (Phoenix) has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for the rights to operate daily, year-round service between the airline’s hubs in Charlotte, N.C., and Philadelphia, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. US Airways will begin service between Charlotte and Sao Paulo on June 8 using frequencies leased from another carrier. An award of rights for Charlotte – Sao Paulo flights will ensure US Airways avoids a service interruption due to the frequency lease terminating prior to Open Skies between the United States and Brazil commencing in 2015.
US Airways’ proposed service between Philadelphia and Sao Paulo would be the airline’s third daily flight to South America and would complement its existing service to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro from its Charlotte hub.
