It's Curtains for US Airways Movies

http://66.225.205.104/SG20080710.mp3

US Airways has announced that, by the fall, the airline will remove the heavy machines that show in-flight movies. The carrier says doing so will save it about $10 million in fuel and other costs. It's the latest in a growing list of changes the airline is making in response to fuel prices that are 185% higher than they were a year ago. To talk about the changes and how US Airways and other airlines continue to cope - or attempt to cope - WFAE's Scott Graf called Joe Anselmo, the Senior Business Editor at Aviation Week Magazine.
