 STRIKE AGAINST USAIR ENDS: FULL FLIGHT SCHEDULE HIGHLIGHTED
 BY SPECIAL FREQUENT FLYER BONUS
 ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir will resume normal flight schedules effective Monday, Oct. 12, following the end of a three-day strike by the International Association of Machinists (IAM). A tentative contract agreement between the two parties was reached at about 11 a.m. today. The IAM leadership has indicated that it will recommend ratification of the agreement and, assuming successful ratification, expects their members to return to work on Sunday, Oct. 11.
 "USAir will be at full pre-strike service levels at all of the 124 airports on our domestic and international route network on Monday morning," said Seth E. Schofield, USAir chairman, president and CEO. "We appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers during the strike period and welcome them back to USAir."
 Schofield also described the tentative agreement as "fair and equitable" for both parties and noted that, "We achieved our goal of reducing costs for both the near and long term."
 USAir will immediately offer a special one-time "Welcome Back Bonus" of 6,000 miles to members of its Frequent Traveler Program who take a USAir flight that originates in North America or a USAir Shuttle flight between Washington, New York and Boston between today and Oct. 16, 1992. (Flights on USAir Express do not qualify.)
 By taking only one flight during this period, USAir Frequent Travelers will earn one-half of the 12,000 miles required for a free roundtrip ticket being offered through USAir's Triple Play Bonus program, which runs between Sept. 3 and Dec. 15, 1992. Free travel awards can be used for trips between any two of the more than 260 cities served by USAir, USAir Express and the USAir Shuttle in the United States, Canada, the Bahamas, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
 For those not enrolled in the USAir Frequent Traveler Program, membership is free and is instantly available at all USAir ticket counters, city ticket offices or by calling USAir reservations at 800-428-4322.
