US Air is going to start today its new daily service between Philadelphia and Venice , Italy. I know that 762ER will be put on this route , but does anyone know which is the aircraft 's registration on the 1st inaugural flight? And other information about this flight (LF...etc) ?

Thanks

Davide

N656US will fly the inaugural to VCE today. Load is heavy but not full. Surprisingly, tomorrow's return VCE-PHL also has plenty of pax.

KEWL more intl routes - - -
When WN decided on PIT what Intl routes were lost from US, if any?
Why not more INTL Routes for US air?

Opening new stations, especially international, is a capital intensive venture.
So US Airways must have seen some great potential in Venice for them to invest in the start of service...smart...not much service from North America...better in my opinion than them wandering into the same old markets served by the competing air carriers.

Hey LXsaab2000,

Did you fly Saabs? I used to fly ZRH-VCE all the time. I have probably been there 50 times.

Do you work in Europe? I have my JAA licences and used to fly for LX before getting bumped by the Astronauts. Now I fly CRJs in the US. How 'bout you?

You'd never know US was starting this route at all judging by the Philadelphia press. The Inquirer Travel section is still recoving from its orgasmic response to WN starting PIT.

Once again the Inquirer has become the de facto WN PR machine.

Does this mean that US may be recovering somewhat? We've all been predicting it would be gone by now, but it just started a new international route...

Thanks,

Good news for US though!

Delta does - that's it I think
(I think it operates as an extension of their MXP service).

No, just a JFK-VCE nonstop.

Yup, seasonal only, along with the new BCN service.

Actually, Delta operates a daily nonstop JFK-VCE flight using a 763ER, that goes down to 4-5 weekly flights during the winter.

My mistake - thanks for the correction. I'm sure somebody used to operate a US-VCE flight with a stop in MXP - AZ maybe?

It is expensive to set up international stations, but at this time, that is where the money is. Those overseas flights are usually pretty good cash cows.

DL is going very well on VCE-JFK flights with a medium LF about 90% and a lot of cargo load.

Yes, Alitalia operated the route around 1998-2000 with a 767-300!

Venice, is that capitol of the Veneto region. The Veneto is one of the most, if not the most industrious of Italian regions. Veneto, is part of the Padania arch from Torino(Turin), Milano(Milan), Verona, Venezia(Venice), and Trieste. However, many chose not to refer to the region as Padania. I guess that is something that only those of us with famiy in the region, will claim! Aside from that I wish US Airways a great fortune with the advent of this route. Delta has proven the route to be most rewarding. In addition look for service this summer on Eurofly's A330 from JFK to Bologna, Palermo, and Napoli(Naples).

They are also limited in international routes because of planes, especially widebodies.

Yes it is, and for mostly that reason too.

US doesn't plan on going anywhere, and this is the third consecutive summer US has added European routes.

Amen bother, amen! Same thing is happening in PIT too.

I hope someone gets some pictures of the US 767 in VCE tomorrow or over the next few days. I'm surprised there's not a DL @ VCE pic anywere in the database.

With the extra 767's now flying to Venice and Barcelona, how many workable "spare" widebodies does US have kickin' around?

I don't think any. US is hard-pressed when it comes to widebodies, that is until they take deliveries of the A330-200 in 07' or 08'.

Two to Three Years longer than people are betting on United Airlines existence! Not to mention United Airlines ran scared from the Italian market! Remember FCO-IAD, MXP-IAD circa 1990's to 2002?

Naples is a dirty industrial town, I can see why there is not much service there from the US.

I'm going to be there next week, but only long enough to catch the ferry to Ischia.



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.
