In fact, Shuck says, if anything, she'd like US Airways to make more seats available every day.
A top official with the compnay says US Airways was hurt more by September eleventh than any other carrier because its primary business involves shorter flights along the east coast where many travellers have opted in favor of cars or trains.
But Shuck says, local US Airways travel is down only as much as the other carriers, about 8 or 9 percent.

It is the scandal that could catch homemaking guru Martha Stewart in its net.
[SUPER=03-New York, NY;]
Today the former chief executive of ImClone Systems- Sam Waksal- pleaded not guilty to banking and securities fraud.
The 54-year old said he still believes in his company's cancer drug- Erbitux- saying it has the potential to help thousands.
Waksul is accused of trying to sell ImClone shares ahead of a public announcement that the Food and Drug Administration would reject ImClone's application to market its drug. He's also accused of
tipping off two family members.
Martha Stewart reportedly sold her ImClone shares one day before the F-D-A announced it would not approve ImClone- and the stock price dropped.
