Charlotte to Heathrow
TEMPE, Ariz. -- US Airways Group Inc. has won permission to fly from its hub in Charlotte, N.C., to London's Heathrow airport.
US Airways plans to begin the flight in March using Airbus A330s.
Right now, US Airways flies from Charlotte to London's Gatwick airport, but business travelers generally prefer Heathrow. A US Airways spokesman said the airline hasn't decided what it will do with the current Charlotte-Gatwick flight.
The new route is in addition to the Philadelphia-to-Heathrow service the airline currently offers.
Free 'cellphone lot'
IMPERIAL, Pa. -- Pittsburgh International Airport is offering free parking for folks who want to sit in their cars and wait for arriving passengers to call on cellphones to say they've arrived.
Allegheny County Airport Authority officials are hoping the plan will prevent motorists from congesting the curb near the airport's terminal or the access roads around it by driving around in circles waiting for cellphone calls from arrivals.
Drivers can now park free for an hour in the extended-term lot farthest from the terminal, and pay only $1 for a second hour of parking. After two hours, the spots will cost $8.
Lorraine Motel balcony open
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The balcony where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis is now open for visitors for the first time since the National Civil Rights Museum opened in 1991.
The museum says visitors on Monday were able to stand on the spot where King was fatally shot on April 4, 1968.
The museum stands on the grounds of the former Lorraine Motel, where King stayed while supporting a sanitation workers strike. It includes various exhibits about the history of the civil-rights movement and allows visitors to see the room where King stayed.
The balcony will be open temporarily, likely closing around the time when renovations to the museum end in 2014.
Ski slope app
DENVER -- Skiers and snowboarders accustomed to tracking how many runs they've done will soon have access to a smartphone app to track their jumps and spins too.
Vail Resorts Inc.'s EpicMix application changed the industry in 2010 by using radio-frequency ID tags in lift tickets and passes to communicate with scanners on lifts to tally riders' vertical feet and runs.
Now the company Active Network has developed a smartphone app to count a skier or snowboarder's jumps, spins and other hill stats, such as average hang time. It works with the help of a motion sensor made by Golden, Colo.-based Mosoro that is based on Bluetooth LE technology. The app will likely come out early next year. The app will probably be free, while the sensor is around $100.
