I have done a search and can see no other threads about this...

US Airways at present only serves the Dublin to Philadelphia route during the summer period, but have announced the route will operate all year continuing through the 2007/08 winter period.

No details of the aircraft operating the route, but I assume it will be 757-200 as it is at present during the summer.

Yep it was announced last week and discussed in the Irish aviation thread but your right there were no individual threads on it. And yes A 757 - 200 will operate it. Very good news for DUB with good connections down to MIA and the Caribbean.

If they are flying the B757 on the route, I could easily see how this would be year round and a money maker for US Airways. Aer Lingus had previously announced that PHL was top on their list time ago, but with all the recent changes with Aer LIngus, the open skies pact re: transatlantic flights and now the competition from US initiating the route, maybe Aer Lingus has rethought this route.

I could be wrong, but doesn't any airline that serves DUB have to serve SNN as well? So by adding DUB, aren't they technically adding two flights? Or is this the other way around? I could swear I heard that somewhere on this site.

PHL is still on EI's list of potential routes coming soon

Currently for every 4 times an airline flies into DUB they must fly to SNN. However US serves SNN daily during the summer months so that covers the requirement for the airline to solely fly PHL-DUB during the winter months. However, this requirement goes away some time next year.

This flt will only operate 4 times weekly and with a 752 i believe. I thought DUB was a decent money maker cargo wise, however with the 752 their cargo capacity has been drastically reduced. If EI starts the route in the next year or two they might be able to capitalize on this

This was likely asked before, but will EI codeshare with US?... at all in the future?

Just a note. ALL US Trans-Atlantic 757s have now completed wingletting and refurbishment. The Envoy section is completely redone with Recliner (pseudo flat) seats (ala 333s) and IFE. Consequently, the downgrade from the previous 767s won't really be that much of a negative - other than the possible overall feeling by some of space suffocation on an 8 or more hour flight. US's TA 757s should fare very well with it's competitors.

Do you have any photos of the new Envoy seats?? Would like to see them.

I dont see this happening soon as it would conflict with their AA codeshare.

Can anyone advise what US carries between PHL & DUB? It is mostly O&D traffic or do they get a lot of online connections?


It is what it is.

Mostly DUB-Florida and DUB-West coast and some Caribbean traffic. Then you have a few to all other parts of USA and a few to Canada. It depends whats available. We check firstly AA then US CO and DL price which is the cheapest and that normally determines the airline of booking . US seem to be more fairly priced than other US carriers.

anytime i watched them load it while in work, i thought the cargo going into that 762 would never end.

i had work colleagues fly with them down to Miami to pick up a cruise ship. i'm sure they're not the only ones to ever have done that.

Has anyone flown US Airways from PHI to DUB on their 757s? Do they have a little more room than their domestic counterparts? I flew from LAX to DTW on NWA last month on a 757-200 - it was a miserable 5 hours in very cramped conditions. I have always enjoyed widebodies over Atlantic and last time I flew narrow body from Ireland to US was an Aer Lingus 707 in 1977. I never looked back since then and now it appears as if I am about to experience the past again on a 757-200.

US has yet to fly the 757s to DUB, therefore no one has flown the route on one. It was flown by 767's the past couple summers. Welcome to ANet

Umm.... No. Only 3 done, 203 is having some work done by "Alabama Pride" and should be next to go down to MCN. 4 left to get winglets and new interior.

Nope, 75's have been going to DUB for atleast a few days now. I believe Thursday night it was 201 saw him at A16 and said to myself wow they are finally being used for reason they did the mods. Rather than sending them to MCO 3 times a day.

Airline stat sources don't actually show any (0) US wingletted 757s currently available for service as of today, but I assumed that all 7 were "in progress" and would be ready by the June 15th forecast date. If 4 still have to be wingletted and then refurbished, they all likely won't make that date. If they do not, It's difficult to see how US is going to take any out once the schedule starts. It would be almost criminal competitively to use any of the undone ones for the entire season after all the hype.

It's taking them much longer than Im sure they anticipated. They are morons for not having started much earlier. 201 took over a month and 200/202 about 3 weeks if I recall.

Only a few aircraft have been re-fiited meaning some flights will be operated with domestic config but sold as Envoy etc.. Mad.

U.S obviously wanted to operate DUB for a while now year round but would have to operate to SNN, but not now due to the phasing in of open skies, Do you think U.S will operate SNN at all next year as they will not be obliged to?? How about DL, CO, AA- will they operate to SNN next year??

Ah, the infamous Shannon Stopover. Luckily for us, it is being phased out and will be completely gone in a short while.
