US Airways is offering its employees $100 bonuses if flights leave on time and bags don't get lost this holiday season.
After a summer full of flight delays, the airline wants to meet
specific performance goals in November and December: at least 60
percent of all flights must depart at the scheduled time or
earlier, and mishandled bags must be limited to no more than seven
bags per 1,000 bags.
If both goals are met, the company's roughly 36,000 employees
will get $100. That includes about 5,300 people who work at the
airline's largest hub in Charlotte. If one goal is met, employees
will get $50.
US Airways spokesman Phil Gee said as of Sunday, both goals were
being met with 60.9 percent of flights leaving on time and 6.15
mishandled bags per 1,000.
