US Airways was a major American airline that ceased to operate independently on April 8, 2015. In 1979, Allegheny Airlines changed its name to USAir and began seeking to expand its operations. A decade later, it had acquired Piedmont Airlines and Pacific Southwest Airlines. In 2005, America West Airlines carried out a reverse merger and branding of the larger US Airways. In 2013, American Airlines and US Airways announced plans to merge, creating the largest airline in the world. In October 17, 2015 US Airways made the final flight for the airline from San Francisco to Philadelphia with stops at Phoenix and Charlotte, operating as Flight 1939 commemorating the birth of All American Aviation, which evolved over the decades to become US Airways.
