US Airways Retrenches

US Airways has announced major route realignments and job cuts, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The company will cut about 1,000 jobs and trim flights while focusing on its hubs at Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia and Phoenix. It will cut back hard on flights from Las Vegas but will continue to emphasize service to Washington’s Reagan National and a shuttle between Boston and New York’s LaGuardia.

US Airways operates 14 flights daily out of Bradley, including three flights daily to Reagan National, Philadelphia and Charlotte. Based on the news reports, its reasonable to guess that any trimming at Bradley would more likely involve the twice daily flights to Chicago’s O’Hare or the once daily flights to Pittsburgh, Rochester and Washington’s Dulles.
