Last flight for US Airways expected in October

DALLAS (AP) -- The last flight for US Airways will take place this fall, and then one more name in airline history will disappear.

US Airways 434 is scheduled to depart San Francisco and land in Philadelphia around 6 a.m. on Oct. 18. The US Airways website will be turned off. The airport kiosks and signs will change to American Airlines.

The two airlines merged in December 2013 and decided to keep the better-known American name. Plans for US Airways' final flight was announced Friday.

The new company's biggest challenge may be combining two different computer systems. United Airlines has stumbled since merging with Continental and it's led to outages that have grounded hundreds of flights.
