IIRC, US' PHL-PDX routes are all HP equipment.

Other US PHL routes using HP equipment (A319/320s w/the AW-suffix on the reg. number) are PHL-LAS & PHL-PHX; though not every PHL-LAS/PHX route uses HP equipment. Last year, my LAS-PHL flight was definitely a US-East plane (one of the fromer-EA 757s).

There used to be a midday CLT-BWI-CLT CRJ-900 flight in America West paint. Yes, I realize that would be Mesa and not USAir West. And since it also loaded at Charlotte's remote E concourse and way, way, way at the end of Baltimore's D concourse, almost no one would have seen it anyway.  boggled

Quoting PHLBOS (Reply 2):
Last year, my LAS-PHL flight was definitely a US-East plane (one of the fromer-EA 757s).

Interestingly, the merger reunited the EA 757's which had ended up separately at both US and HP.

The hub runs are usually a mix between east and west metal. PHX-CLT usually operates with east and west Buses, with the occasional west 757. LAS-PHL has at least one west metal flight on a Bus with east 757s picking up the rest of the slack.



Tiny, unreadable text leaves ample room for interpretation.

I know in September ORD-PHL will be AWA Also CLT-EWR will be AWA. If you look at the flight numbers. All AWA aircrafts and crew will use 1-700 flt numbers and east metal uses 700-and up for there flts. Hope that helps

Back when the merger was just announced, they used an America West/Mesa Airlines CRJ from here in ORF to CLT

the LAS-PHL and PHX-PHL were obvious routes because served prior to the merger by both airlines, that's why I didn't list those.

I know past routes also where HP metal were utilized through east hubs were:

PHL-DEN
PHL-PDX
CLT-DCA
CLT-LAS
CLT-PBI
CLT-EWR

have the east 757 aircraft been retro to match that of their west counterparts re: seating? I know they previously only had the 8F seats compared to HP's 14F. And as for the west, if I'm correct, 3 B757 have winglets or did that just go this week?

IIRC, US' PHL-PDX routes are all HP equipment.

This past Monday, I saw N114UW getting ready to do PDX-PHL, so it's probably not all West metal on the route (unless this was a particular substitution).

PHL-PDX had one west trip about a year ago. However that trip is no longer - route is 2 east flts now. Around the same time we also had ATL which is also no longer.

On a side note starting Sept 1st all East metal will start using the cactus call sign and all west metal will start using the USA instead of AWE identifier. But the 1-699 flight number range for West metal will remain intact and still no crews flying opposite metal.

I thought Sept 1 is when the entire network starting using the "Cactus" callsign?

OK, after three years, shouldn't there be no "east" or "west" when it comes to US? This has to be the most drawn out, complicated merger I can recall. Someone in Arizona is doing something really wrong if they haven't meshed this airline into one single, cohesive system by now. It's no wonder why they get such consistently poor ratings from customers.

Quoting TN757Flyer (Reply 17):

It is more about the US east pilots that pulled on mulligan on their commitment to accept an arbitration regrading seniority and formed a new union.
US air management can not merge the fleets since east pilots can not fly west metal and vice versa until the issue is resolved.
I agree that the management should have anticipated this and acted up front to prevent this, but they did have a commitment to accept arbitration.

This failure affects their bottom line more than it affects customer ratings though.

The CR9s in HP Colors were common post merger; since West moved some AWE/Mesa CR9s that were flying on the West side to Charlotte.
