Nope, they're still in the fleet. I flew on one from PIT to MIA and from PIT to LGA in July. They are all in the old,
USAir livery as they are being phased out eventually. I
did notice that the interiors had been redone though in
the same scheme as the rest of the fleet.
US Airways' MD80's are nasty. The two I flew were
filthy. There was no space in the overheads and they
were really showing their age. These are some of the
first MD80's to roll off the Long Beach assembly line.

Agreed, I was surprised to see the old livery on their MDs in YYZ. I flew them to PHL twice, and they aren't no where as pleasant as the new 737s or A32Xs but they weren't terrible. But they have have to do something about their old livery.

I have flown on every aircraft in US's mainline fleet except the A330 and I find that the MD-80's are the second worst, behind their fathers in the fleet, the DC-9. The seats are so cramped, they are filthy, the rear of the aircraft on the outside is absolutely disgusting (although the DC-9's are worse). The F-100 I found to be incredibly clean and comfortable, and I would like to see the MD-80's and DC-9's replaced with 717's, and keep the F-100, although this is HIGHLY unlikely.

US still flies MD-80's into and out of MCI (Kansas City). I flew on an MD-82 from MCO to CLT and an MD-81 from CLT to MCI. All of their -80's are ex-PSA aircraft, my favorite airline. I can still picture those smiles on the planes.
