New (and improved!) Coffee Cups on US Airways Flights

US Airways has been pretty loyal to the Styrofoam coffee cups in first class on short-flights and pre-departure.

It was sturdy.  It didn’t crack.  And I didn’t feel like I was going to pour my drink all over myself.   This paired with US Airways offering real glassware on their shorter flights too has made me a very happy flyer.
