US Airways (LCC +7.5%) trades higher with more drama swirling around AMR's (AAMRQ.PK) American Airlines. The company says it's trimming capacity, while industry insiders continue to whisper that an unannounced pilot sickout is in full swing. Either way, the carrier has been a conspicuous leader all week long in cancellations and delays. US Airways for its part appears to be looking forward, with President Scott Kirby outlining how the carrier will move deep into South America if a merger with American fails.
