 Because of the ongoing investigation we will not comment on specific details of the allegations, other than to say that we are not aware of any widespread or systemic irregularities in maintenance, and that we continue to have a high level of confidence in USAir's commitment to safety.
 With regard to the daily operations of USAir flight crews, our pilots are trained to the highest professional standards.
