I Tasted The New American Meals and They Are a Serious Downgrade


Today is Day 1 of the Douggie Diet and I must say there are very few ups and more downs to the US Airways/AA food enhancements. The benefits of the new food offerings is mainly for US Airways fliers as meals are now being served on many more US Airways fights than premerger and now flights ...

I spent a large part of my day planning a last minute award trip to Europe. As you can ...


US Airways Clubs add complimentary Spirits & Upgraded Food
