(Las Vegas, NV) — US Airways is cutting back on service in Las Vegas. The Arizona-based carrier says it will reduce its daily departures from 35 to 21 flights by early next year. US Airways wants to operate nearly all flights from hub airports to increase profits. The airline was once the busiest carrier at McCarran when it was known as America West. Airport officials expect rival carriers to fill the void.
