US Airways seeks route-start delay

May 23, 2008|From Times Staff and Wires

US Airways Group Inc. asked federal regulators for a one-year delay in starting new flights to China because of the soaring cost of jet fuel.

Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways wants to begin the Philadelphia-Beijing route in 2010, according to a letter.

US Airways follows UAL Corp.'s United Airlines in making such a request to the Department of Transportation. The annual fuel cost for the China route has increased 80% to $90 million since US Airways filed its application in July.
