US Airways employees take home more than $260,000
A US Airways flight attendant won $10,000 after making a customer “feel at home” on a flight from Charlotte, N.C. to Mexico City earned her an entry into the airline’s “Above and Beyond” employee recognition drawing.  The employee took home a portion of the more than $260,000 that US Airways gives away each quarter to 360 employees. Nine additional employees also received a check for $10,000, including five reservations agents based in Winston-Salem, N.C. In November 2011, the airline returned 200 jobs previously handled outside of the United States to its call center in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The “Above & Beyond” program recognises those US Airways employees who strive to deliver remarkable service to not only the airline’s customers, but to fellow employees. The program allows US Airways’ most frequent flyers (Dividend Miles Silver, Platinum, Gold and Chairman’s Preferred members) and its employees at the manager level and above to submit coupons recognising employees for providing excellent customer service in the air and on the ground. All coupons received are entered in a drawing and each quarter US Airways awards:
*  10 employees $10,000 each;
*  100 employees $1,000 each; and
*  250 employees $250 each.
“Our ‘Above and Beyond’ program spotlights our employees who take great care of our customers and also work hard each day to support their fellow colleagues,” said US Airways’ Chairman and CEO Doug Parker. “We take pride in recognising these employees for a job well done. While many employees view their actions as ‘simply doing their job,’ we see it as going the extra mile to help us continue to run a great airline.”
