s we enter the traditional year-end holi
days, the men and women of Piedniont
have many reasons to take pride in the
accomplishments made in 1987 and
look forward to 1988.
The year 1987 will go down as one filled with records.
We flew our first transatlantic service, and did so prof
itably last summer when we launched Charlotte/Lon
don Gatwick daily Boeing 767-200 Extended Range
service. We flew more passengers than any prior year
in our history, and made that effort all the more
worthwhile by earning greater profits than any prior
year in our history.
In 1988, we must surpass each of those records
we established in 1987, and at the same
time lay the foundation for a merged
airline that will become a new, bigger
and even better airline than either e:
Piedmont or USAir, alone, represents 1;
today. I can assure you that
executives at USAir group
share our desire that
this merger be achieved

We can all do this. With the san^ie support you gave to
Piedmont. I believe we can build a future with even
greater horizons and greater security.
Tb each of you. my thanks for a job well done, and n\y
best wishes for a Happy and Prosperous 1988!
