Events were be held at all four stops, which include major hubs. Details as reported by the OMAAT blog (http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.c...irways-flight/).

I for one will be on the PHX-SFO leg. I'll try to say hello to those of you strong enough to do the redeye!

LUS: Who flew last US flight? (US 1939 Lv SFO 10 pm 16 Oct 2015)

Given we now have been updated on the final target date for "One system. One code." is 17 October 2015, it may be time to start a thread here for those who will be on the last US Airways coded flight.

As soon as "red-eye " is mentioned you can be 100% guaranteed that I won't be on it!

Heh, heh! That was my exact thought.

Note there is some discrepancy with AA emails stating the end of US coding is the 17th - or 18th! - so we may all want to keep our powder dry until this is clarified. "DON'T book em, Danno!" At least not until we have clarity - alert a mod to change title, feel free to edit the wiki, if we get anything that clarifies it to the 18th.

I saw the language in the email from AA that says "as of July 18, all flights departing on or after October 17 will be American flights" and went ahead and booked US434 for October 16th.

But I made sure to book a refundable ticket.

IMO, that's the way to go.

But you're a better man / woman than I am, Gunga Din. A redeye that long without a flat bed is just not in my repertoire any longer. Passing seven decades in age just is a huge disincentive.

Hell i won't do it either now even at 47. Those red eyes are brutal. I avoid them now unless it's across the Atlantic or Pacific and a given i'll be in at least J if not F.

Kind of an out of the way flight for me at least, being based at that time at MCO. Checked prices to SFO, and on-top of them being ridiculous they don't even offer a connecting version going through PHL to get back to MCO. Wish they offered a short East-Coast CLT, DCA, or PHL hop, oh well. Looks like I flew US for the last time at the end of April. So long Cactus, it's been a good ride.

Does anyone know for sure if it's the 16th or the 17th? I only asked because FC is sold out for the 9:55PM flight on the 16th (even EF shows F0) while it appears wide open on the 17th.

FC? A real Flyertalker would make sure to book the last row of coach, so as to be the last passenger off.

It was wide open on the 16th when I booked that flight on Friday afternoon! So much for my hopes of getting the last possible stickerless transcon upgrade. At least I snagged 10A . . . .

I mentioned on another thread: If a flight is US until it's completed, wouldn't a more likely candidate be the PHL-TLV flight?

I'm interested in going on this, particularly since I'm SFO based! Current coach fare is $767, tempted to burn 30k AA miles for an anytime coach award...

I'm in as well. I can guest into the lounge in SFO, just not sure when my positioning flight will be out there.

I'll probably be in LAS then, but I can always take the 10:25PM flight LAS-PHL. Anybody wanna meet for breakfast? Or guest me into the US club in PHL if you're just doing a turnaround?
