Hey y'all, I was wondering if anybody knew how US' new routes to Stockholm, Milan and Lisbon are doing? Also I had heard previously the Glasgow route wasn't doing so hot. Any info?

Well US achieved a 72% load factor for PHL-GLA-PHL in June. Not great, so I imagine yeilds are down due to the all eco cabin and the smaller cargo capacity of the 757 vs the 767. Hopefully the introduction of J class to the ETOPS 757's next year will see yields increase again.

I heard that US were planning to use these to fly to DUB and SNN year round. Can anyone elaborate anoymore on this matter?

I take it that these are 767 routes all from PHL?

Really! I remember seeing pictures in the photo database of a US 767 in Stockholm. Might just have been a once off. Have US re-configured the cabins on these 757's for long-haul flights?

US Airways pulled the 767-200's off the PHL-GLA and PHL-SNN routes to operarte PHL-MXP, PHL-ARN.

The 757's operate PHL-LIS, PHL-SNN, and PHL-GLA. The plan is to have the DUB/SNN routes go year-round with 757's.

Stockholm sees a 762 every day. from what i heard of the loads arent the best.I am surprised Us Airways didnt make any ads about this service.i am sure most people dont even know they fly here.

Would DUB be with a B757 in summer or would they retain the B767 on the route?
