US Airways has claimed some bragging rights for performance.

The airline claimed the number one spot in three categories in the transportation department's May air travel consumer report.

US Airways was tops for on-time performance, baggage handling and consumer satisfaction.

The department says the airline won each category by a narrow margin.

It beat Chicago-based United Airlines for on-time performance by only half a percentage point, and it beat out continental by only ten bags in baggage handling and by eight complaints in customer satisfaction.
