Pop Quiz answer: U.S. Airways


A little while ago, Ambassablogger Ryan conducted a Pop Quiz of Ambassablog readers, based on Ambassablogger Ed’s Of hubs and spokes post. Ryan offered a “Just Plane Thanks” employee appreciation ticket to the first Airport Authority employee who could answers this question correctly: What airline has hubs in PHX, PHL, CLT and LAS?

usairways_logoToday Ryan announced that we have a winner! A big congratulations to Christy in Audit who correctly answered the pop quiz. The answer is U.S. Airways, which has hubs in Phoenix, Philadelphia, Charlotte and Las Vegas.

U.S. Airways is an important airline at Lindbergh Field. In 2005, it merged with America West Airlines, but way back in 1988 it took over San Diego’s popular hometown airline, PSA, or Pacific Southwest Airlines. psa-heritage

Back in 2006, U.S. Airways honored that legacy by dedicating a special “throwback” plane at San Diego International Airport painted with the famous PSA colors and smile (pictured). Airport Authority staff were joined by many former PSA employees (a few people fell into both categories) to mark the special occasion, which is documented on the PSA History Page.
