US Airways - August 2013 - (Page 6)

CEO Letter embark thank You for Flying with us Our Special Commitment ★ If you look around the cabin today, you might see a service member traveling with you. US Airways honors the bravery and dedication of active-duty and veteran military members and participates in initiatives to honor their service. Some of the ways we support current and former members of the military include special rates, support of nonprofit organizations, and employee participation in events and activities. US Airways offers military airfares and waives baggage fees for active-duty service members and their dependents. We also invite those active-duty service members in uniform to be among the first to board our flights. Our commitment to supporting U.S. troops, veterans, and their families has been recognized by two respected magazines. This spring, US Airways and American Airlines, with whom we anticipate closing our merger in the third quarter of this year, were named as “Best of the Best Top Veteran- 2011 2012 2013 Our Medals of Honor Friendly Companies” by U.S. Veterans Magazine. The two airlines will be spotlighted for our support of veterans and efforts to hire a diverse workforce in the magazine’s summer issue, on newsstands August 15. This is the second year in a row that US Airways has earned high marks from the magazine. We were also named a “Best for Vets” employer in 2011, 2012, and 2013 by Military Times Edge magazine. This past spring, the selfless actions of a customer toward a serviceman received high marks from one of our pilots, Captain John McKenna, who shared the following letter with me: I recently flew a trip from Philadelphia to San Juan. On that trip I met a passenger named John Adams who has become a hero to me. He stood at the boarding door and picked a member of the armed services to take his seat in Envoy, our business class cabin, and he took the soldier’s seat in Coach. The flight attendant said he has seen this gentleman do this before. I introduced myself and thanked him for his patriotism and generosity. He was sitting in a full row working on his computer when I stopped by. He said it was his pleasure to sit back in Coach as the uniformed service member took his lie-flat seat. How great is that in this day and age? We think it’s pretty great, too, and we thank Mr. Adams for his kindness and generosity and Captain McKenna for sharing this story. On behalf of the 32,000 employees of US Airways, thank you for flying with us today. We hope that you enjoy your travels and that we see you again soon on another flight. US Airways is proud to be named a Best For Veterans employer by Military Times Edge magazine for three years in a row Doug Parker Chairman and CEO Important Information About the Proposed Transaction with American Airlines Visit for more important information about the proposed transaction.
