Quoting Vega (Reply 6): I just wish they had used a different Font for the name "U*S Airways". Something a little Bolder and maybe Italic.
That would have required an expensive rebranding. Part of the beaty of this whole merger, is they don't have to go through and change everything at every station and on board: from bagtags, to signage, to stationary....etc.

I like the livery as well. I have only seen it on a CRJ, but feel that it does a very good job of representing the airline and country. It is very professional while not being cluttered or excellively ornate. That is a good representation of American business and service.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

It looks very...Presidential. Whether or not that is a good thing probably depends on who the flyer is, and who is in office at the moment. With a 37% approval rating right now, I'm not sure it's a good thing.
I do like it, but it seems a bit staid. I have to agree that the typeface is kind of holding it back from being more interesting. It's the serif, I think.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those that don't.

the 767 was going to lgw as a substitute for the a330. we had some a330's that were in for maintenance. we have discussed this here before. the a330 is back on the phl-lgw run. i have also heard that they will be removing the flatbed seats on the a330 and replacing them with the envoy seats and economy class will begin at row six . currently the economy class on the a330 begins at row 8. the way it's configured is we have the six flatbed seat at row 1. then envoy seats 2/2/2 from row 2-5 ,galley, then envoy seats at row six and seven. which we sometimes use as a crew rest area when completely empty.

Quoting Vega (Reply 18): I believe this was a swap out and the 333s are scheduled year round PHL-MAN.
It wasn't even a swap. 656US ferried in to MAN in the evening and left shortly aftewards for PHL. It didn't even get in to PHL until midnight. Also notice the flight number was 9198 indicating it to be a non-revenue flight of some kind (generally 9000 series numbers are used for charters, repositioning moves etc. by many airlines). The normal A333 flight is US 197 and operated normally that morning.
I'm not entirely sure why 656US made the stopover in MAN on the way back. I had heard they stopped there in the event reapirs were nescessary, but then again they did fly to MAN alright.
I think Big Foot is blurry, Its not the photographers fault. Theres a large out of focus monster roaming the countryside
