I would like to know if HP's 757's have an entertainment system, hot galleys, what does their interior look like and where does HP fly them?

HP doesn't serve meals, at least not in the back... routes rotate... they've flown them to most major cities they serve.

Those pics are of the new style interiors, I am not sure if all of HPs 757s have them yet.

As for IFE there is in-seat audio as well as over-aisle monitors for the movies. HP used to have hot meals on their long haul flights pre-9/11. They were acutally pretty good too.

As for destinations, PHX and LAS for obvious reasons. LAX, BWI, ORD, DCA, SEA, DEN are some that I know off hand that have seen 757 service... not sure where they are flying these days. But pre-911 all BWI flights, except from CMH, were all flown with the 757.

i think i just noticed that fll will have the return of the 757 for the winter, both from las and phx, in addition, phx-lax, las-jfk, phx-las, phx-san, phx-dca, phx-bwi, phx-dfw, bwi-las, phx-sfo, and depending upon season, during the winter, cabo, denver, and pvr will see a 757, usually during the summer, seattle will see the 757. they are flying with 14F176Y seating, overhead projectors every 3-4 rows, galleys are on every a/c, but no coach meals, and only cold plates in first. america west has 13 757 a/c in the fleet. occastionally depending upon loads, i have also seen hp 757 flying to msp, atl, ord, dtw, mco and sna.

I flew on HP's 757s a few times in the mid 1990s. Actually most of my 757 flights have been with HP.... However my memories of them are not so fond. I was once forced to occupy a seat someone had urinated in, around 1996 or so.

I don't remember being served food very often. When food was served, it generally was not so good.

BTW in summer 2002 America West did a test of selling food, but I guess it did not go over too well.

I flew HP's 757-200 last year on a LAS-JFK route. The interior looks ok, with a 1980's style TV's hanging from the ceiling. No meals except for peanuts on a 5-hour flight. Oh, and don't forget the $3 rent on the headphones to watch an in-flight movie.

My worst experiences as a passenger have been on HP 752s.

I won't get into much more detail, obviously it was a combination of circumstance not the airframe itself.

To speak specifically to the airframe - I have been on some ghetto HP 752s. Extremely uncomfortable, old, and smelly interiors.

if people knew america west a lil bit, look at their schedule, their one downfall in fleet utilization is the 757, they have 13, and book 12 to fly everyday, if one breaks, they use the spare, but that spare is usually in phx, so if you are out west, you might have a couple hour delay to get that spare to your city, if you are on the east coast, you are screwed. imagine a 757 booked to 190, they have to sub in an A320, which only holds 150, nightmare of an overbook. happen to me once going to sfo, they were offering people $300, and a flight through either geg or boi to get to sfo.

Aren't HP's 757s some of the earliest off the line?

back in 92 I rode their 757's on the ORD-LAS route. It was ok and they had s good meal with silverware to use in a nice tray. This wasn't first class anyway. I don't know how they are now since I haven't flown on them for 10 years now.

HP received a few of their 75s after NW acquired Republic and dumped the RR powered frames. I'm not sure if they were leased to HP or outright sold, but some of those 752s are 84-85 vintage.

I never liked the 757's. When I first started with HP the broke down alot and we got lots of 737-200's and 737-300's to sub for them. However over the past few years the 757's have gotten far more reliable but they are still no pleasent to fly on. Give me the 737 anyday over the 757.

I flew an HP 757 from IND to PHX a few years ago. A friend of mine is an FA for them and sent me a buddy pass. I had to drive up to IND for the flight but it was worth it. The plane was in good condition, we had a small meal, etc. No complaints on my first and only HP flight (except for the return to IND).

I flew JFK-LAS on a HP 752 more than a week ago and I thought it was ok (first time I flew on a 757 for 8 years). IFE was ok (with the TV giving some distortion at given times), they only served meals to First Class passengers (I think) and all we were ever served was with drinks and at two seperate times in a flight a small snack. (biscotti or whatever they're called and peanuts). I would've been thankful if they at least were selling food onboard since the flight was 5 hours but none the less it was a very good flight.
