Since Sept. 11, airlines across the country have been losing money.

U.S. Airways is no exception.

Because of this shortfall the airline is streamlining its flight schedule.

U.S. Air has cut flights in some of the larger cities, and those cutbacks have trickled down to the Valley.

"What we found is with reduction in capacity U.S. Air's done system wide, realignments we've done by adding a mid morning flight and late evening flight helps us meet their banks better in the Pittsburgh area, providing more destinations in shorter layover times than we've had in the last year," explains deputy airport director, Dennis Burnett.

U.S. Air now has three flights in and out of the Valley.

Burnett says these new times should be more convenient for the business traveler.
