I have heard a lot about the possibility of a USAir 777 order. The best
reason for getting them is the status symbol value. USAir is short on
status symbols (getting shorter with Airbuses, too...) and they would make
some sense. Everybody's gotta expand sooner or later. USAir...US Airways
(gotta get in the habit of using that damn name) would like badly to expand
into bigger, better markets. The way I look at it Steve Wolf  bought A320s
twice, why not 777s twice? Airlines have done weirder things before.
