Hey everyone. I havent posted in awhile so here is my question to you. Tomorrow will be my first time flying with America West. I'll be flying ORD-PHX on board A320 scheduled aircraft. What can I expect from AW? Happy holidays and a prosperous new year.

You can expect the exact same service that you would get on a legacy carrier. I flew on HP for years, and they were just as good in First as AA or UA. Of course, that's no longer applicable, since their transition to "low cost carrier", however, since everybody else has lowered their offerings, HP's coach product is practically identical.

There'll be IFE in the form of both video and audio (I think headsets are still $5), a drink service, probably with cans, and that's about it. HP has the "look and feel" of a legacy, with a cost structure more in line with the AirTrans and Frontiers of the industry.

I flew IAD-PHX 2 months ago for the first time on an A319 in Y Class, I must say very nice Aircraft, Polite F/A, and you get a whole Can of pop free of charge!......In my opinion the best LCC in the USA!

""!......In my opinion the best LCC in the USA!""

Taken from Expedia, there is nothing Low Cost about HP in my opinion, seeing all the majors fly this route for around $220.00 R/T. Not to mention Look at some of the connections you can take that are listed.

DCA PHX DEN LAS
DCA PHX ABQ LAS
DCA PHX SEA LAS
DCA PHX EUG-LAS
DCA PHX BOI-LAS

Now I love to fly and I will make a connection if it is on the way such as DCA DFW LAS but I will not go out of my way to get to where I was going in the first place such as the DCA PHX SEA LAS.

Now HP is the only airline that can offer the DCA LAS non stop, so I would expect to pay more, but not for their connecting flights

Not really sure why you listed all those, seems like overkill to me. Problem is you used a travel agency website. Expedia, Travelocity and all those will create routings like that to present the consumer options. Someone with more knowledge of Sabre etc will be able to explain it better.

Had you gone to America West's website and put in DCA-LAS, you would find your ONLY options they list are DCA-PHX-LAS, or DCA-LAS. Since the original poster was flying ORD-PHX, why did you pick on DCA-LAS?

Cactus739,
Excellent point! The listings are utter poppycock and they take up alot of space.

America West's A320s have IFE, unlike the AA MD-80s....enjoy.

America West, I find, is pretty bare bones service- pretzels and pop. However, they are really dependable, and I think that, like Northwest, you dont get much, but you always know waht to expect; clean planes, a polite crew, and safe transport from point A to B.

You'll have a nice relaxing flight- and enjoy HP!
