how come US doesn't have any intrest in Asian routes. I know they have an alliance with UA, but why wouldn't they wan to have their own. I know the A330 isn't capable of that trip but they could use other planes that have been stored or buy some especially since they're not in ch. 11 anymore

US needs their 10 A332s first, and those are scheduled for delivery beginning in 2009. The A332 can open up routes like PHX-LGW and PHL-NRT (assuming they didn't decide to run Asian flights out of PHX.) But that's a few years down the road yet.

I still think that Asia will happen out of PHL before PHX... Much larger O&D, as well as regional feed. It would be nice to see them [PHL] land All Nippon Airways or SQ, or both... then they could start something along the lines of a Star Alliance hub, which would be rather neat at PHL... Yet... where's the room for this?

I don't think so. Flying out of PHL to Tokyo represents a huge backhaul for most people - who's going to fly STL-PHL-NRT? They'll have far more feed possibilities going westbound through PHX.

PHX is not exactly chopped liver when it comes to O&D, either.

Well true, they could either fly US from STL-PHX-NRT, or AA from STL-ORD-NRT or wherever AA flies over in Asia. I am sure they fly to NRT, don't they?

But, coming back to PHL, what about people flying up from the south? How about ATL-PHL-NRT or MCO or CLT, RDU, DCA? And how about some folks from the near west, like PIT? As PIT surely as heck won't support any N/S Asia service...

PHL has a brand new international terminal

it sits almost empty in the morning and early afternoon until US's european bank comes in. Most flights on the east coast to asia leave around noon so if US, or any other Asian carrier wanted to start a flight im sure there would be space for them.

All those cities have non-stop US service to Phoenix which could connect to a PHX-NRT flight. A DCA-PHX-NRT itinerary is reasonably competitive, time and distance-wise, because the connecting flight is going in the right direction.

But nobody, and I mean nobody, is going to fly, say, ABQ-PHX-PHL-NRT. The itinerary goes 2,500 miles in the wrong direction, and requires a double-connect to boot! Which is the other issue with PHL - there are many, many fewer PHL-West spokes than PHX-East spokes.

US does not have the equipment, rights nor the slots (at NRT)to fly from PHX-NRT so this will not happen anytime soon. I could potentially take them years just to obtain these if they were interested in doing so.

Since PHX is not on the way between DCA-NRT, it is not competitive with say DCA-DTW-NRT or DCA-ORD-NRT. It is over 900 miles farther!!

Why yes, I do. PHX is a bigger total O&D market than Philadelphia. 20.8 million to 13.4 million. However, US West has a smaller O&D share of PHX because of Southwest's strong presence.

Annual O&D for each respective hub carrier in 2004:
1 PHL (Philadelphia, PA) 6,527,660
2 PHX (Phoenix, AZ) 5,545,080

Those aren't chopped liver numbers by any means.

900 miles in the right direction is substantially more competitive than 2,500 miles in the wrong direction with double-connections required from all but eight cities west of the Rockies. (LAS, PDX, SFO, PHX, SEA, LAX and SAN are the only places with nonstop service to PHL or CLT.)

How about the O&D PHX-NRT vs PHL-NRT which is what we were comparing.

DCA-PHX-NRT does not seem competitive to me with 900 extra miles to fly compared with existing connecting flights.

I'm not arguing that DCA-PHX-NRT is supremely competitive. I'm arguing that as a connecting route, it is more competitive than forcing US West customers to backhaul all the way to PHL to get to Asia.

Where's UA's major Asian gateway, ORD or SFO? I rest my case.

The easiest way to solve this problem would be to launch PHX and PHL service to Tokyo simultaneously  Wink

Look, going to Asia is pretty much straight north from most of the USA. That's why PHL would be rather good from the entire East Coast, particularly from Florida, RDU, DCA, etc.

PHX is in a bad location for Asian routes. No realistic expectation of California traffic. You've got Vegas, Texas (already served), Albuquerque and Tuscon. Nowhere else is well served from Phoenix, certainly not the East Coast. PHX may get an NRT flight someday but mainly for locals. It's pretty much the worst spot in the country for an Asian hub, far worse than ORD or DTW for example. And here's the kicker, LAX and SFO do a great job with PHX demand to Asia already.

But PHX is a great location for Hawaii, Tahiti or even SYD. Their Hawaii connections DCA-PHX-KOA for example are great.

NRT isn't a good option for US due to the fact that getting slots there is just not likely anytime soon. PEK and PVG are much beter, more likely asian destinations.

US' 767-200ER's have 6,600 nm of range, the A330-200 will have 6,750nm of range - only 250 more, so any asian routes they would do with A332, they could do now with 762ER.

PHL-PEK: 5,977nm
PHL-PVG: 6,452nm (that's stretching it)
PHX-PEK: 5,648nm - assuming its not a hot day, no problems
PHX-PVG: 5,887nm

So really, PHL isn't much further than PHX, and doesn't have the weather issues, moreover, anything they'll be able to do with the A332s, they can run now with 762ERs. Also, China makes a better destination for them, since slots into NRT won't happen, and KIX has been problematic for US airlines. ICN might be another option. HKG is just out of range.

PHL-NRT (assuming they didn't decide to run Asian flights out of PHX.) But that's a few years down the road yet.

PHL makes more sense than PHX for a number of reasons. Firstly, It isn't really any further away from most asian destinations than PHX. Secondly, PHX has 115 degree summer days in which a 762ER or A332 would have trouble getting airborne with a full load of fuel and payload without weight restrictions. Plus, they'd need to get slots at NRT. Good luck.

Quoting Ca2ohHP (Reply 15):

Now that US' finances are in order, that might be more realistic. Seeing as the 762s are still flying fine and recently were overhauled, I don't know that they are hurting so bad for the A332s capacity at the moment.

Even though the A330-200 is a very capable aircraft.

PHL-NRT is beyond the reach of this type of aircraft and PHX-NRT is within the reach eastbound but westbound flying against the winds will stretch the A332's limits.

I don't think the A340 is even an aircraft US Airways would want to consider, but they would need to be looking towards this kind of aircraft to fly to Asia. Maybe they could acquire a few A343's from AC as a stop gap until the A350 XWB arrive in 6yrs!

Wrong. US Airways' 762ERs simply do not have that sort of range. Remember, they were intended for an airline focusing exclusively on transatlantic and transcontinental services. They do not have the gross weight or the engine performance to reach the range limit of the 762ER family.

The 762s have not been recently overhauled. They *will be* given an interior makeover next winter, with new lie-flat seats in the Envoy cabin and probably a new IFE system, at least up front.

That will never happen. You'll see US refuse to take up the A350 order first and go in on some 787s instead. Remember, US is under absolutely zero obligation to accept the A350XWB - it's a 777-sized aircraft now, completely different from the plane they originally ordered.

Although your point is well taken that PHX may be a better NRT connector for western travelers than PHL, you neglect that AA, CO, UA and several Asian carriers all have non-stop service to NRT from the East Coast, thereby confirming that North/South and International feeds via the East Coast to Japan must be adequate. PHX would possibly have the same problem with Western feeds to Asia as PHL in the respect that the largest Japanese American population lives on the Pacific Coast and Hawaii. Why would they backtrack to PHX with so many non-stop flights to Japan from LAX, SFO, SJC, SEA and even PDX? Remember PHX-NRT was previously attempted with HP. It did very poorly and was quickly dropped. Unfortunately as you know the 332 has the potential restricted max range for PHL-KIX (for example) only and possibly even PHX-KIX only because of the summer heat - anything beyond needs to wait for the 350 or a replacement aircraft such as the 787-800. On the ? of O&D; Domestic O&D is possibly not an accurate measurement of viability when discussing international travel. The 2005 International O&D Numbers for PHL were 1.82M (O) and 1.83M (D); for PHX 871K (O) and 873K (D) - a significant difference of 2 million passengers. Further, most of the PHX O&D was for travel to/from Mexico. One would assume that US has already negotiated a fallback to the 350 delays with Airbus, a leasing company or ?, since they surely cannot wait for the 20 - 350XWB deliveries to start in 2014 - or later. A final point, dismissing all the problems with US domestic at PHL, a few Asian flights from there would give US a lot more stature as a global player - in my view, than one from PHX or elsewhere.

They are hurting *very bad* for the A332 capacity at the moment. The European expansion has stretched the US widebody fleet to its limit and beyond. Several more 757s will be ETOPSed this winter so more long-thin cities can be opened up. The lack of aircraft and gate space are the only things keeping US from making PHL into a dominant European gateway in competition with CO/EWR and DL/JFK.

Again, that's not true.

The old HP Japan service was PHX-HNL-NGO and was a disaster, using old ex-KLM 747-200s. One-stop service over HNL in a very big aircraft to a very secondary Japanese destination on a very-fledgling and highly-leveraged LCC... yeah, that was pretty much destined to fail.

Now we're talking about the fifth-largest U.S. airline with a much stronger hub, the right-sized aircraft with the ability to go non-stop, alliance feed and billions of dollars in the bank. A completely different scenario.

Seems like your're attempting to extract the miniscule portion of my post to make your point. Regardless, US would not be able to fly to anything but a secondary city in Japan - so that situation still applies. I do not believe the PHX location has the drawing power, when compared to PHL as I expressed earlier, to make Japan work especially for premium revenue - which would be mandatory for the relatively small size 332. I am not at all negative about US trying a PHX-Japan flight IF there is no better alternative.
