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.

    Pilots never did know when they had a good thing going for them!
    Never backed up the flight attendants or mechanics.

    Maybe Mr. J., but when the US East pilots were accused of "sabotaging" the operation, in 2011 I believe, the companies own stats revealed in a hearing that the mainline performance was better in every single area than the "express" operation that compromises half of US AIRWAY'S total daily flights. Perhaps the question is what is really sabotage and by whom is it being done. Even on the best days US AIR EXPRESS operational performance is mediocre and on a bad day it is dismal.
