The two last flights for US Airways will take place this fall, officials said Friday. Flights 496 and 434, which are scheduled to depart Phoenix and San Francisco at the same minute, will both take off October 16.
US Airways was founded in 1937. American Airlines and US Airways merged in December 2013 and decided to keep the better-known American name.
"The great news for customers is that after our cutover on Oct. 17, the travel experience will be seamless," says American executive Kerry Philipovitch.
