It’s worth noting that there are variations of this message that provide a different Flight Number, so even if this doesn’t match exactly you should still be cautious.

If you hover over the “Online Reservation Detail” link you’ll notice that this link doesn’t actually resolve to a US Airways website, instead directing you to a website that isn’t related to them at all. While the “Privacy” link appears to resolve US Airways, it’s probably not a good idea to click on this link either.

To make a long story short, if you get this message immediately delete it from your inbox to avoid these link infiltrating your computer system and exposing security holes.

If you found this message helpful, I ask that you kindly share it with your friends and family so that they can keep their computer systems secure.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
