Other than Europe, is San Juan (SJC) the only other destination for US Airways' A330?

From http://www.usair.com/about/corporate/profile/factsheets/international.htm:

US Airways’ first A330 entered service on May 4, 2000, between Philadelphia and Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport. Currently, nine A330s are in the US Airways fleet, operating between Philadelphia and Frankfurt, London (Gatwick), Paris (Charles De Gaulle), Rome, Manchester and San Juan, Puerto Rico, as well as between Pittsburgh and Frankfurt.


So yeah, that's pretty much it.

Doesn't CLT have any A330-300 operations? I knew that they were mostly 767-200, but in a recent Trip Report posted in the correspondant forum, there is a leg from LGW to CLT on A330. Maybe for summer only?

Every now and then a 330 will be used on an equipment substitution. Once they got it to SEA, it would have to turn around a go back East.

From what I can tell they're using the 333 as standard equipment for the CLT-LGW routes nowadays.

Yeah, that's what I'm finding too. I guess they should update their sight throroughly, as that info came from a page that was updated last month.

Sorry for the mis-information.

"THey've flown it b/t PIT/SEA. I also thought they did a continuation flt through either PIT/PHL to LAX."

I think this is a case of same number/different aircraft service...whereas, lets say flight 50 (just pulling out of the air) flies from some European destination to a hub with the A330, and then the domestic segment of flight 50 is operated with an A320 or something like that...US does this frequently with their flight numbering systems...a real example is flight 42 DEN-PHL-AMS...the DEN-PHL segment is operated with an A319, and then the PHL-AMS segment is operated by a 762...with regards to LAX, US cant fit an A330 into their gates at LAX, thats why they never flew it there, so the largest LAX sees is a 762...

On topic again...US briefly flew PHL-MIA with the A330 as a continuation of FCO-PHL...and on occasion there are repositioning flights with the A330 within the hubs, and they are operated as scheduled flights...

I have flown US Airways on the leg from CLT-LGW and was operated on a 333.

Came to me as a little bit of a surprise as it is the only Transatlantic flight operated from the airport but had a reasonable payload (80% ish). I think most the passengers were from connecting flights like myself where I had just arrived from LGA as CLT is a major hub for US.

When I flew out to America from LGW with US, I was on the PHL flight and the flight to CLT was boarding at the same as us and had far passengers on than our flight and both were operated by 333's.

If you want to fly with US, I would highly recommend connecting in CLT over PHL as the airport has got to be one of America's best. If is so easy to get around and light and airy.

I think they also fly the A330 from Philadelphia to Bermuda, althought I could be wrong.

US Airways also operates CLT-FRA with a 767-200.
