In fact all US Airways flights will now cost more…if you choose certain seats. Starting May 07, 2008, US Airways has implemented “Choice Seats” program, which essentially means that they are going to charge $ 5.00 more for the good seats that were originally free in you requested them. Once again the airlines are lowering the service, and charging more for the luxury of reduced quality of service. See the details below….
Our new Choice Seats program
|Starting May 7, we’ll introduce our new Choice Seats “” select aisle and window seats in the first several rows of Coach. You’ll have the option to purchase a Choice Seat assignment during Web Check-in (from 24 hours and up to 90 minutes prior to departure). That means aisle and window seats are likely to still be available even for last minute travelers. Dividend Miles Preferred members have the benefit of reserving a Choice Seat assignment free of charge.
The price for Choice Seats varies by destination and length of flight. Choice Seats are available on all US Airways operated flights except the US Airways Shuttle and Colgan operated Saab 340 aircraft.
We thank you for your business, and as always you may find complete information about all US Airways programs at usairways.com.
