==Description==
  +
FlyUS was founded in [[1983]], with the same era planes still in service. The Flight Attendants are described as old, cranky and miserable, and the air service is implied to be poor and unconfortable, as a radio commercial describes "''Sit back, relax and shut up''". This could possibly be a stereotype of American flight companies.
   
FlyUS is known to serve 55 destinations in 37 countries across Asia, Middle East, Europe, North America, Latin America and Oceania. At [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|Francis International Airport]], there are multiple advertisments promoting flights to [[Los Santos]], [[Las Venturas]] and Vice City. There can also be seen FlyUS cars driving along such as the [[Feroci]] and the [[Perennial]], as well as the [[Ripley]] and the [[Airtug]]. There are also taxis and buses which bear FlyUS advertisments.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, FlyUS appears to be the only airline serving [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|Francis International Airport]]. While there are advertisments for other airlines, like [[AirSol]] and [[Adios Air]], FlyUS is the only whose airplanes can be found. The airline fleet includes a large amount of planes based off the [[wp:Boeing 747-300|Boeing 747-400]] jumbo jet and also some [[Shamal]]-like planes, seen parked around the airport with the FlyUS logo - Although only the Jumbo jets are seen flying (And also roaming around runways and taxiways).

In Grand Theft Auto V, FlyUS is one of the four international airlines serving [[Los Santos International Airport (HD Universe)|Los Santos International Airport]].
  +
  +
Despite, unlike Francis, not being the only airline predominant in Los Santos International, it still has a relevant presence: Once again, the [[Airtug]] and the [[Ripley]] also bear FlyUS logos, and there is also a hangar in the west vincinity of the airport bearing the logo of the airline. Advertisments for the company can be heard on the radio.

Unlike in GTA IV, the fleet includes controllable [[Shamal]]s and [[Jet]]s.

In '''Grand Theft Auto IV''', The livery is mostly light grey with a blue bottom, tailfin and engines, resembling the [[wp:United Airlines|United Airlines]] 1993-1997 "Battleship Grey" livery.

The livery changes in '''Grand Theft Auto V'''. It is now a Eurowhite livery, with the bottom of the fuselage and the engines painted red - this is slightly similar to [[wp:Scandinavian Airlines|Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)]], however SAS doesn't have red-painted fuselage and blue winglets.
