US AIRWAYS CREATES NEW POSTS TO CLEAR UP PHILADELPHIA SNAGS
US Airways Group Inc. hired two executives Monday who will work to improve service and efficiency at the airline's hub in Philadelphia.
The Tempe-based airline has had service problems at the East Coast hub for a number of years. US Airways (NYSE:LCC) has turned a financial profit in recent quarters, but has lagged other carriers in terms of customer service and flight delays -- in part because of the challenges in Philadelphia.
Suzanne Boda was named a senior vice president and Robert Ciminelli was named vice president for the Philadelphia operation.
Boda, 48, comes to US Airways from Northwest Airlines, where she served as a vice president. She will oversee the US Air's hub at Philadelphia International Airport, shuttle operations, international flights and the airline's cargo business. It is a new position.
Ciminelli, 56, will be responsible for all aspects of the airline's operations at its Philadelphia hub and will report to Boda. His job also represents a new post. He previously served as managing director at New York's LaGuardia Airport.
