US Airways Group Inc.

The airline blamed high fuel prices for its quarter-billion dollar quarterly loss. But the company's CEO said the task of merging US Airways and America West was going smoothly, and predicted the nation's fifth-largest carrier would be profitable on an operating basis in 2006. The per-share loss narrowed because the latest period had a greater number of shares outstanding. The former US Airways Group Inc. and America West Holdings Group Inc. merged in September, and year-earlier results include only America West.
