There were no major hiccups in the computer systems merger of American Airlines and US Airways.

The airlines, which merged in December 2013, combined their two passenger service systems overnight Friday and appeared to have no significant issues.

Customers were able to check in for flights at self-service airport kiosks that now say American instead of US Airways. The US Airways website immediately redirected visitors to the AA.com website. Signs at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport’s Terminal E and on International Parkway were switched out overnight Friday.

At Phoenix, one of US Airways’ hubs, there was a small glitch with airport monitors not displaying gate information, but that was due to an airport issue and not related to American’s computer system cut-over.

The last US Airways flight, Flight 1939, arrived in Philadelphia at 5:58 a.m. Saturday. During the flight, passengers were served cake and had a ceremonial champagne toast to the airline that was founded 76 years ago in Pennsylvania as an air-mail carrier.
