US Airways' planned cutbacks of staff and services in Pittsburgh have drawn the ire of Sen. Arlen Specter, who wrote to US Airways CEO Doug Parker that the scheduled cuts were part of "a pattern of unfulfilled commitments and false expectations created by US Airways regarding the airline's presence in the region." An airline spokeswoman said the cuts were made after "a significant amount of soul-searching and analysis" and noted US Airways is offering $20,000 buyouts to flight attendants who prefer to quit rather than transfer out of Pittsburgh.
