US Airways Set To Make Last Flight Before Joining American

Thanks to its 2013 merger with American Airlines, US Airways will make its final departure under that name Oct. 16 after 76 years of operation.
US Airways, like Pan-Am and Trans World Airlines, will disappear after providing Americans with the luxurious air travel during the '60s and '70s, the so-called golden age of air travel.
The American Enterprise Institute reports air travel has steadily gotten cheaper over the past two decades, as the notion of flying has morphed into something to endure, not to enjoy. But it wasn't always that way.
