Last flight for US Airways designated
DALLAS- US Airways will fly its last flight under that name in the fall.
It'll be flight 434 departing from San Francisco and bound for Philadelphia on Oct. 18. The US Airways website will also go dark. Then the airport signs and kiosks will be changed to American Airlines.
