Bad news about US Airways employees, terminal construction

When unpaid volunteer bloggers are involved, a blog's monitoring system for reposting stories from other local media about PHL and airline service suffers occasionally from power failures-- also known as a lack of energy to do the monitoring. Last week and Sunday, the Inquirer had articles by airline reporter Linda Loyd you may be interested in if you only stop here for your news. The stories involve an alleged scheme by a few US Airways employees to profit from the sale of so-called "buddy passes," and a far more serious situation: What's behind delays at PHL in completing work on the baggage-handling and ticketing areas of the combined Terminals D and E?
