If (and that is a big if) the FA situation is settled, yes, the 767s will be used on transcontinental runs.

As for the A330, maybe a US route here and there and that's it. Europe is in the forecast for the A330.

I think the only routes you'll see the A330s run domestically for a while are PHL-CLT, PIT-PHL, PIT-CLT. Those are primarily the only domestic routes you see the 767s run now.

It's not about load factors, it's about aircraft placement. If an international flight is departing PIT but is coming from maintenance at CLT, it makes more sense to use this aircraft for revenue flight rather than ferry it.

It also has to due with the fact of load sizes they arnt going to send a 744 to somewhere when all they need is like a BAe-146-100? It all works out in the end....Who cares they probally wont exist soon any ways.

You never know.... Delta runs a 767-300 between PHL and JFK at least once a day. How do you explain that?

First, an answer to B777UA:
The A330 will be used mostly for international services, starting with CDG and expanding to LGW, FCO, and other cities. There will be some domestic relocation flights (see below).

The 767s that the A330s will be replacing on their current int'l routes will first be used on new routes such as Manchester, reintroduction of Amsterdam, expanded frequencies to new destinations, and possible new destinations such as Zurich or Milan (the only things approved and confirmed are Manchester and AMS, Zurich and Milan are on the block but haven't been approved by the gov't, so don;t look for them anytime soon). As more A330s take over the Atlantic, then the 767s will be used on transcontinental markets such as PHL/PIT-LAX/SFO.

There is so much US Airways wants to do in Europe that for the time being they need every aircraft possible, so don't look for 767s regularly doing domestic runs for a few years, when the A330s become more common.

As for the argument about the domestic 767...

Right now there is only ONE domestic 767 flight, and that is one daily each direction PHL-CLT. This flight is for aircraft relocation. One aircraft operates CLT-LGW-PHL-CLT and repeat, while another operates CLT-PHL-LGW-CLT and repeat.

Look for similar things with the A330 in a year or so. The first few A330s (probably until early/mid 2001) will be used on routes from Philly.

So, I guess its no mystery anymore, US Airways has A-330s on the way. I much prefer the A-330 over the 767-300ER, it felt more hi-tech (flew on an LTU A-330) and less rattely which I have always thought was the major hit against the 767.

Just a tidbit here... The US Airways 767s are -200s and not -300s.
