From their AboutUS employee publication https://wings.usairways.com/uswings/news/aboutus/download/081111_aboutus_outlook.pdf Q. American, Delta, Southwest and United/Continental all have smartphone apps. Any plans for US Airways to enhance our customers’ experience by offering one? A. John Gustafson, managing director, E-Commerce & Distribution Strategy, explained that improving our presence on mobile devices is an important initiative at US Airways and we’re actively expanding our efforts. We have focused on our mobile website first – http://mobile.usairways.com – because it is compatible across hundreds of devices. We’re working on launching new functionality on that site, including the ability to check in using your mobile device, and continuing to improve the interface of the mobile site. Apps are the next wave of mobile and they are powered by an entirely separate technology infrastructure than our mobile website. In addition, each unique operating system (e.g. Google Android, Apple iOS) requires a unique app. As a result, the development and technology support required are more complex. However, we are excited to report that we are actively planning to roll out smartphone apps next year. Eventually, apps will be used to book tickets and ancillary services and also give customers the ability to manage their Dividend Miles accounts and reaccommodate themselves in the event of a service interruption. Given the broad scope of how apps can be used in our business, there is a lot of work required in order to ensure we deliver a great product.
