NPR's Scott Horsley reports that US Airways will shut down at midnight tonight Eastern time, if management can't reach a contract agreement with flight attendants. A shutdown would ground about 1,800 daily flights. US Air handles a third of the passenger traffic along the East Coast. Other airlines wouldn't be able to accommodate all the passengers who'd be affected.
