US Airways final flight
By coincidence last night I was on the last ever US Airways flight. American Airlines bought US Airways in 2012 and the overnight flight US1939 from San Francisco to Philadelphia was the final time a US Airways flagged plan will fly before officially becoming part of AA.
There was a party at the gate along with a load of camera crews, and twice I was asked for an interview but I politely declined. Flight US 1939 was named after the year the airline began service known then as All American Aviation. We each got a souvenir bag, a huge cake and champagne as we hit the skies, although the bloke next to me was asleep as soon as he sat down. I’ve always wanted to be able to do that!
