The little airline that was born of deregulation in 1983, America West Airlines,
will now be the world's largest airline! America West Airlines took over
US Airways in 2005, kept the US Airways name and moved the headquarters from
Arlington VA to Tempe AZ. Now, US Airways is taking over American Airlines, and
will retain the American name and move the headquarters to Dallas.People always called us American West Airlines, and we would joke 'the N
is silent'. Well, that no longer is true.
