Thanks to reader PHXGter for providing a few juicy items from the latest US Airways employee newsletter. As follow-ups to employee questions, US Airways President Scott Kirby discussed future African routes, European route strength, and further expansion in Asia:
“Miami would serve as a great gateway to Africa. We have done some looking at points in Africa, but this is speculative and probably a little further down the road.”
“We feel that we are on par to Europe with Delta and United.”
“Asia is the one region in the world that when we merge we’re a little bit behind. We have a lot of focus on the right places to grow in Asia. We’re behind United and Delta because they have old networks that are part of a post- World War II treaty with Japan so Asia’s been our focus of growth.”
According to PHXGter, a question was also asked about the New American’s flights to Israel given the still unsettled severance dispute with the previous TWA Israeli employees. No response was provided.
