At PHX this morning, I think I saw N908AW (former Cardinals plane) with brand new winglets -- and it looked awesome. If my eyes weren't deceiving me, does anyone know when this happened? Also, what is the timeframe for adding winglets to the rest of the US-West 757s?

IIRC US was planning on adding winglets to the 757's over a 2yr period. However not all 757's will get winglets. They are planning on retiring some of the older 757's and will put winglets only on the frames they intend to keep around for awhile.

they are very interested in the 200's . it's too early to tell on the 300's which would be a great addition for the hawiian ops. but we have strong competion from fedex for the 200's since they have cash and we all know that cash is king. so to answer your question . it could go either way but the company is actively pursuing these a/c.

Some of the West 757s are really hurting. I flew on 915 a few weeks ago, a jet built in 1984 for Eastern. Getting TZ's 752s would be a huge benefit for US in allowing to expand their fleet or to retire some of the older models.
Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Quoting San747 (Reply 20): SAN and LAX. Those are the only one's I've seen besides PHL and CLT.
We had a late night SFO departure on a 321 in the fall/winter, and we get 321s from PIT every so often. ORD and SEA seem like natural choices for new 321 flights, but that's just pure speculation on my part.
On the subject of 908, I guess that would explain why I haven't seen it in a while...
