==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 and shut up''". This could possibly be a stereotype of American flight companies.
