US Airways pilots, represented by the US Airline Pilots Association (USAPA), have asked the carrier's management to terminate VP of safety and regulatory compliance Paul Morell.

USAPA argued Morell ignored or dismissed safety recommendations from pilots "despite the fact that the pilots are on the front line and dealing with these issues on a daily basis".

The union further claimed that, "USAPA has reached out to Mr. Morell time and time again, requesting his input and guidance about how to alleviate the many safety issues that face our pilots. At best, we have received a dismissive or tepid response; at worst, complete silence."

US Airways said safety is the carrier's top priority and management completely supports Mr. Morell.
