Postal Service Pulls US Airways', AA's Mail Shipments
The US Postal Service
has decided to suspend all shipments of US mail through US Airways
Group, Inc. The reason? They couldn't deliver it on time.
A five-month analysis of the delivery statistics resulted in the
decision to call of the shipments of first class mail through the
airline after the data showed a consistent pattern of late
US Airway's was not the only one caught in that net. American
Airlines also lost its mail shipments for the same reason,
according to statements made to the USPS to the Wall Street
spokesperson for US Airways, declined to discuss how much money the
airline will lose due to this decision. The Bureau of
Transportation Statistics, however, has public information that
says the airline made over $6 million in gross profits by carrying
mail through 1Q04 through 3Q04.
Castelveter did say that airline officials working with the US
Postal Service to resolve the delivery issues that have plagued the
airline since it began carrying mail in June 2003.
