It has actually been out for a couple of weeks, but better late than never.

It is just like the old HP website.

Not bad, seems a bit more organized, easier to read, or information seems easier to locate... Maybe it has to do with the extensive use of white.


There is something special about planes....

Good thing. The USAirways site is/was about the most convoluted and difficult site out there.

Not too impressive, BUT if it works (better than the old US site), who cares. I mean couldn't they have come up with a less drab Home Page - guess it's because of the Desert Heat .

It's actually a lot easier to navigate, I'm looking forward for the new website to launch, I think is a lot more user friendly, I hope this way customer complaints about the website are reduced

Hopefully their new website works better than the new Employee Travel Center....what a disaster so far.

Hopefully the new website works better than their employees. I had the worst travel experience on USAirways last week that I've ever had. Particularly on the Express flights...

I hate how US and UA's route maps online don't have the route lines! Just the city names!

I hated US's old site, and was not thrilled with AWA's so that leaves me still with not thrilled. They should take a lesson from CO's.

Yes, they said it would be basically a revamp of our old site.

I think it looks fine...hopefully will work out ok.

I like the fleet page with all of the US Aircraft. The BE1s, E70s, ERJs and the DH8s look awsome in the new livery. I can't wait to see them on an actual a/c. Also, anyone know when the noise cancelling headsets will be introduced into the first/envoy class cabin?

Am I the only one out there that likes the old US site? I think that the old one was great..... granted it was a bit old and in need of an update. I dont like this new HP - US hybrid.

EDIT: I dont like this new hybrid WEBSITE....... love the new airline! Haha, just wanted to make that clear.

Basically this IS the old America West page, with updated graphics. Everything else is the same pretty much.

I really like it, US is quickly becoming one of my favorite US airlines! I especially liked the fact when I clicked Travel Center on the bottom right of the page it actually showed a real weather map! Maybe other airlines have this also but I think it is quite neat and helps let me know if I'm going to hit some bumpy weather before I head to the airport!

I think if they put together a page of aircraft types they DON'T operate, it just might be shorter.

Oh.. that E70 & E90 are SEXY!!!! can't wait to see them in the new colors.. can't wait to see the E90 at RDU too! Ohh.. fun days.. Who flies the SAAB for US?

And where is the 350? or perhaps that's not necessarily an absolute deal yet? I mean, they do have the E90 up there.. hmm..I ponder.

Add me to that list too.

The HP site seems to be great if you want to book travel for
the lowest available fare, but when you want to do other things...ughh!

If you want to look at flight schedules, it is through a drop-down menu
with the cities listed alphabetically. You can't enter the airport codes.
Plus, there is no displayed calendar on the screen for you to click on
the specific date you want.

And one time I tried to book a multiple-city itinerary by schedule, and
that got me nowhere. An "error" display kept appearing after the system
tried to fare it out.

Let's hope that the "new" merged site is slated for improvements.  pray

Not bad. Its a big improvement on their old cluttered site. I still think that DL has the best site, just the simple stuff, very streamlined and clean.

Is it just me, or did they use an E-170 for the E-190? And the same thing for the Dash-8 200 and 300.
