Where is it undergoing the mods at? And where will it re-enter service? Will it be at PHX to do the Hawaii runs until US starts 757 routes to Europe?

Not likely since these aircraft are also being fitted with new interiors and a completely new Envoy (ala 333) section. Can you imagine the outrage from the flip-flop hawaii crowd if they were to get one of these for 3 months and then have it replaced with the existing HP 757. But then again, US has been known to do crazier things.

Not possible. That aircraft is on the US certificate and only able to be flown by US crews. The PHX-HNL service is on the HP cert. and flown by HP crews only.

So does this mean it will probably be going to SXM in the near future?

I'm willing to guess Europe mostly as it has Winglets and SXM is not pushing a 757's range. As more wingleted A/C enter the fleet, expect them to put them on the SXM run as more than 1 will be availible for Europe services.

The to be upgraded 757s are being redone and wingletted specifically for PHL-Europe routes to compete favorably with with CO, etal.. Where these aircraft are used during the off season is anyone's guess. Obviously the best use for them is on premium routes which fill the almost flat bed Envoy with paid customers, such as PHL-SFO, PHL-LAX, etc., but I wouldn't be surprised if they were used on select Caribbean routes. Later, according to Parker in response to an Analyst question, some non-Europe 757s (presumably Hawaii routes) may be wingletted (but without the Envoy upgrades). A blended winglet on these 757s will only increase the range by about 100-150nm. The big advantage during long haul operations is a savings of about 5% in fuel.

I doubt it, the new 767s didn't get PTVs.

Incorrect.... The change over to a single certificate is not expected to take place until Summer 07. March 4th is cut over to Shares from Sabre, or to a single Res System. Something completely different than operating under a single Operators Certificate.

I would like to add my Kudos to US. I think the 75 in the new CS with Winglets will look very nice. Looking forward to see the first 330 in the new CS also.......And possibly a 340...

Talk is that US may be acquiring 340s from AC when their 777s arrive later this year. Talk is of 5 - A345s, but AC does not have that many. I'm thinking more along the lines of 343s. They would be compatible with the 333s that US currently operates.

By "talk" do you have any more substantial proof beyond Airliners.net?
