On 8 April 2015, American Airlines and US Airways took a major step in their merger integration when US Airways flight 774 was the last flight to use the “Cactus” radio callsign. Tomorrow, the two airlines mark the final major milestone in their integration with the last US Airways flight.

US Airways flight 1939 will make a multi-stop tour of the airline’s hubs before landing in Philadelphia as the last ever US Airways flight. From then on all US Airways flights will simply be American Airlines flights. Flight 1939 was chosen as it represents the founding year of All American Aviation, US Airways long-gone predecessor.

Tracking Flight 1939

All four of the final flights will be trackable on Flightradar24 in real time and accessible on our data history page. To track the live flights, search for US1939 or AAL1939 or set a callsign filter for AAL1939. The flight will begin in Philadelphia and fly to Charlotte, Phoenix, and San Francisco, before returning to Philadelphia.

For a refresher on how to use filters, see our blog post.

Below is the tentative schedule for the final flights (all times listed in UTC).
