We have been following the developing escalation in the dispute between the pilots at US and the company, specifically with regard to its impact on customers. While we won't speculate one way or the other as to who is right or wrong in this case, we remain concerned about the viability of short connection times which are offered as "legal" when booking US. During my recent trip via PHL, all I heard from other passengers was their complaints about misconnections and how unhelpful US was in re-accommondating them. We think, therefore, it would be prudent to allow for significantly more connection times than the US web site may offer, at least for the short term. My recommendation would be an 60-75 minutes minimum on domestic and 100-150 minutes on international. On one of my flights, I encountered a delay of more than 20 minutes due to issues with the IFE system. While not crucial to the flight (domestic short flight), the mechanics still came on, and tried to reset the system a number of times before it was decided to proceed and have the FA's do the safety briefing live. As a result there were a good number of misconnects in PHL. Compounded with the fact that some agents are closing aircraft doors a full 10 minutes prior to departure even when they now connecting passengers are on their way, we think it prudent that you allow the additional connecting time to allow for such delays. As I said, we will not take sides one way or the other in this alleged activity, but we remain concerned for our members and all customers of US Airways who may inadvertently be affected by recent operational irregularities there.
