Beginning May 2004, US Airways will add its 11th European route from Philadelphia's new International Terminal A-West.

See the press release:

I think this plane will come from the PIT-LGW service, which will not return next spring.

This route was rumored to begin even before this past summer's PHL-SNN and PHL-DUB services, both of which experienced load factors greater than 90%

Intersting choice in my opinion, given that the only other American airlines to serve GLA are AA to ORD and CO to EWR.

I wonder what the load factors will be.

I forget, any word on when the 762's will be replaced?

United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

Nice to hear new service to GLA from the USA! I would love however for DL to serve GLA from ATL! I know DL had talked about serving GLA from BOS I believe but it was shelved after Sept 11th. I wonder if we'll see any more US carriers return to GLA? NW and UA tried it a few years ago but no longer go there. CO is the only one that's lasted the longest. Hope the route does well!

That's right I forgot about AA ORD - GLA, how many 767-200ER's are left? Will this flight be daily?

Isn't AA's service between ORD and GLA seasonal? Which aircraft type do they use?

AA uses the 2-class B763ER's, they used to use the 762ER's and may still when loads are down.

Yes, ORD-GLA is seasonal.

Interesting to hear that US is expanding even more to Europe! Good to see!

Nt- I guess once they start taking delivery of A330-200s, they're going to start phasing out the 767-200s. AFAIK, they still have all of their 767s, with the exception of the one that had the incident at PHL & was scrapped a few years back.

There are currently 11 - 762ER and 9 - A333 in the widebody fleet. A332s start delivery, I believe, in '06?
