US Airways is realigning its operations to focus on its hub airports in Charlotte, N.C.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Washington, D.C.'s Reagan National; and shuttle service between Boston, New York LaGuardia and Reagan National. By the end of 2010, these routes will represent 99 percent of the airline's available seat miles, up from 93 percent at present. To accomplish this shift, US Airways will reduce flights from Las Vegas from 64 daily to 36 by February 2010, citing high fuel prices and continued weak demand for service to Nevada. The airline also will close its outposts in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Wichita, Kan., and will suspend plans to add a flight from Philadelphia to Beijing.
