Anyone on the inside at US know what the deal is with the flight number changes coming through at the moment.

US14/15 PHL-MUC have been renumbered UA914/915, there are some others too.

they haven't informed anything, my guess will be to start alligning flight numbers between america west and us airways, sometimes passenger get confused when they are trying to book online

They're in the process of renumbering both airlines' flights to get rid of any overlaps, and to make the codeshare flight numbers match the regular flight numbers. It won't be done until around October, though.

This is how I understand it'll end up:

America West Airlines - 1-699
US Airways - 700-1999
US Airways Shuttle - 2000-2199
US Airways Express - 2200-4749 and 4800-5099
America West codeshare flights (operated by Big Sky, Royal Jordanian, etc) - 4750-4799
America West Express - 5100-5499
US Airways codeshare flights (operated by United, Lufthansa, Caribbean Sun, etc) - 5500-8799



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Effective August 1, all HP Express flights will be 2000 series flight numbers. The US codeshare numbers are still 5000 series.

That may well be the case on August 1, but as I said, the process won't be done until October, which is when the flight numbers should be as my list shows. Things will be moving around a lot between now and then.

Oh gotcha...I didn't read anything about that in the schedule change update, but it makes sense. It's quite a shock to us all who have known HP Express as 6000 series numbers for years and years. But with the merger, everything is changing.  Smile

Flight Numbers, as well as aircraft N-numbers. From what the company has said Shares can have any overlap.

I can't imagine any of their aircraft have overlapping N numbers, since they must be unique.

They might have overlapping internal ship numbers.

Yes, they're changing the registrations on about 100 birds, to eliminate overlapping ship numbers and to just better align the two fleets.

If you're curious how that'll turn out, well, I've just got all the answers today.  Wink

100s - CFM56-powered A320s and A321s
200s - A330s, B767s, and ETOPS B757s
300s - ex-HP B737-300s
400s - B737-400s
500s - ex-US B737-300s
600s - V2500-powered A320s
700s - CFM56-powered A319s
800s - V2500-powered A319s
900s - non-ETOPS B757s and EMB-190s

I hate it! Flight 02 and 03 (PHL-ROM-PHL) to 1402 and 1403 just doesn't have the same special ring to it. Sort of takes away the bit of PanAm flavor US has and replaces it with (more) HP flavor.

I hope they are going to align the flight numbers more with destinations.

e.g. European flight numbers range from 2 up to 326 or maybe higher.

CO have all their numbers ranging from 1 up to the low 100's.

It makes spotting life easier if you hear a number in a specific block, you have an idea on what kind of a/c it might be.

I remember changing all those flight numbers from 5000's to 6000's back in 1998. HPX CMH was 5000 and PHX/LAS was 6000. Wow, Times they are a changing.

I am sure once this all falls out, they will be like UA with 900's to Europe and 800's to Asia or something similar. For me, I am happy to see HP keep the low numbers for now. Eventually, once combined totally, we may see the low number back to Europe.

Just one mans opinion

Aww! So much for know what was ex-Piedmont, PSA or USAir. Of course, most of those birds are gone anyway.

Why are some of the -400's being re-registered ending in UW? Is this going to be the new suffix for all the fleet, combining the US and AW?

You're going to the right area; the website just blows.

Many of the US suffixes are not available, generally being taken already by Northwest, so registering the planes as UW instead is nothing new for US Airways; they've already got about half the fleet that way. The birds that are being re-registered are getting all sorts of crazy suffixes, though, not just UW.
