When USAirways flies direct from PHL to DFW, does it have any stops?

What other airlines flies direct from PHL to DFW?

Speaking of USAirways, has anyone been on their 733's? School trip, LGA-ROC is coming up, and I'd like to hear some opinions.

Thanks!

I've been on a US 733 - some have aftermarket video screens in the aisles ala 757, generally pretty comfortable...

They are pretty comfortable-I think all of them have screens, but they will only be used for the announcements on such a short flight...

Their 737-300 and 400s are more comfortable than the 737-300/500 of United, but you can't top Southwest's 737-700.

I flew on a US Air 733 two months ago from CLT to MSP and thought they were fine. The plane I was on have tv screens, but most of them dont.

I have flown US Airways' 737-300s several times on the following routes, going back to 1984 (US Airways was
the launch customer for the 737-300) and when the
plane first debuted in February 1984, US Air had a lot
of magazine ads about them with a close-up of the
engine and the caption "the shape of things to come",
as a play on the new engine types for the 737.

LGA-BTV
LGA-CLE
LGA-PIT
MIA-PIT
PIT-MSP

Most are fine. They used to be the backbone of the
US Airways fleet. Some do have TV screens like the
757. But honestly, flying from PHL to DFW, I'd go on
American, not US Airways.

The US Airways 737-400's were nice. I haven't been
on one since 1993 though but the one I did fly on
was very nice.

Definitely go American. If you are doing anything with DFW, American is pretty much it. Delta won't even non-stop you from PHL. And US won't either. It's a DRIECT flight, but you do have to stop. No change of planes, just an extra landing and takeoff.

USAirways,

The 733's all have TV screens, but none of the 734's do...The reason the 733's have screens is because they were used on long-haul flights like PHL-PHX, PHL-LAS, etc. before the massive Airbus order, and the 734's were used mostly on Caribbean flights and East Coast flights not long enough for a movie...

US B737-300 fleet is broken up into two groups, a standard model, and a long range model. US operates 48 of the standard range, and 37 long range. Long range models have the video screens, along with other ienhanceents for increased range from the days they flew trans-con.

The B737-400 fleet has three groups. 9 standard, 32 long range, and 13 Exteded-Over-Water.

Actually, USAirways does do PHL-DFW nonstop (twice a day according to Expedia). Also, I've actually flown on a 737-400 with a video screen (1991 from DEN to PIT), though they could be all gone by now.

Cheers,

Too many types flown to list

I, too, have flown on a 737-400 w/video screen from CLT-SFO in 1992.

US does fly PHL-DFW direct and also non-stop. I am going PHL-DFW-CLT-PHL 09MAR-11MAR.

One of my pet peeves is hardly anyone, even in the airline community, uses the term "direct flight" appropriately. Non-stop is exactly what it says, direct means at least 1 stop, but no change of equipment. Thus PHL-CLT-DFW would be non-stop to CLT, but direct to DFW.

Even RA230 which operates LGW FRA DXB KTM would still be a direct flight even thought it has 2 enroute stops.

Just to clarify a small point, a direct flight may have a change fo equipment... it may even have a change of aircraft type. What does not change on a direct flight is the flight number. As an example, AA38 used to operate as a 767 SAN-ORD-ZRH. Later, the SAN-ORD leg was downgraded to a 757, then to an MD-80. All the while, however, both legs remained flight 38, SAN direct to ZRH.
