Awesome....well I think there is only 1 plane that has them...so your chances are about 1 in 50 something..LOL. I'd love to see it actually.

AWA has several new A320's and "1" 319 with the new seats in service and a new a/c (678AW) is scheduled to be ferried from the factory to PHX today.

Yes, the new a/c reg for the A320's are 676, 677, and with today's arrival, 678. I am not sure what the reg number is for the A319 that has these new seats, so chances are minimal but it is possible. Good luck!  Smile

it does not hurt to write America West and request that you fly on their leather seat aircraft ... someone posted a picture of their new leather seats but I can't find the thread right here .... I'll keep looking around.

Has the seatpitch in FC increased? Looking at seatguru and seatexpert, HP has lower SP than other carriers in FC.

I don't think so, but i know that the NW DC-9s have 34'' of pitch in FC, as much as B6 in row's 11-26 of their A320s. Also NW in Domestic First has 36" of pitch, same as HP.

Ohmigosh, does this mean they're finally getting rid of that AWFUL pink and turquoise and lavender looks-like-bad-airport-hotel-carpeting-threw-up upholstery that they have now? I don't care if it's leather, just something--anything--except that.

Although...if they sell ad space on their tray tables...why not on their seats? Hmm, this idea might have some potential. No fair beating me to the patent office  Wink

Will the remaining HP A319/320 fleet be retrofitted with the new seats? If so, when will the process begin?

Ship 675 also has the leather. So, you will have a 4 in 58 chance if you are flying an A320 and a 1 in 34 chance if you are flying in an A319.

This was the original plan but the seats have the HP logo in them. So now, I am guessing that the changing of these seats is being put on hold until they come up with a new seat for after the merger.
