I've heard buzz that US Airways will be taking delivery of a bunch of new planes soon. Can anyone tell me what they're expecting and when, or where I can find the info for myself?

TIA

If I may ask. Where did you hear that the first A332 is coming in April. All I've heard for the past year is that both will come in May.

Yeah as far as I know the first is coming early May. (might have changed it but didn't announce)

Check this out!

No US 330 birds seen 10 days ago.
I believe the two first US A330 will be c/n 1011 and 1022.

510UW is up next I think. 519, 520, 521, and 523 (I think they're all UW, but I can't remember) also show up in the system, as well as 196UW and 197UW presumably for the east side.

I haven't seen any fleet numbers yet for the two A320s that are supposed to be delivered this year.

196 and 197 have been in the RE* since 194 was delivered. IMO, I think they are non existent aircraft or may have been pushed to the West side.

For the west birds:

510 - Should be showing up in April IIRC
519 - I have no particular date
520 - Enters Service June 2nd
521, 523 - Enters July 2nd
Next 3 frames - Enters August 1st

Which ends the Summer at 11 frames. The end of the year totals for A321s will be 18 frames.

I'm curious if US has recieved all of their 190s? How many did they actually order and what is the longest flight they are operating with the 190? Are any 190s planned to operate on the west system?

Not sure if this is the longest, because it certainly does not seem that long to me, but they do operate CLT-YYZ.

I just worked 507 last night! Inbound 566 from MCO. I'm really digging the 321's with the IAE engines. It makes the bird look much more streamlines and longer than the East 321's with the CFM's. Now if we could only get the 190's out West....



Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

FYI: The new IAE powered 321s have a higher gross weight and slight increase in range.

I was just spotting at PHX yesturday and saw all 3 of the IAE 321s. I was noticing when they take off, they dont sound anything like the 320 or 319. I was quite surprised at that.

Thanks!

Actually, it was the older 737's that were a problem and about 99% have the new seats.

When do the 190's start getting delivered again?

I'm still waiting for CLT-OMA and PHL-OMA. I think I'll have to wait til more of these planes get delivered first to free up a smaller plane.

Just yesterday I worked a 737 inbound from SAL...the seats looked the same, but there was new carpeting and just about everything inside, from the lavs to the wall panels to the galley, were immaculately clean. I was surprised they would do that for a plane that has maybe a year left.

27 UsAirways16bwi : i flew US on march 1, BWI-CLT-FLL, and returned yesterday (march 18) FLL-PHL-BWI. Aircrafts flown were 2 E190s , a 734, and A321. Obviously both 190s
28 LGA777 : I am pretty sure most of the East Aircraft have the new Blue Leather interiors even the 737's. The main differance with the new delivery 321 interiors
29 ERJ : The new 321 is nice. The fading on/off reading lights are nice. Dual F/A call buttons. Really, its the little things that make the difference.

31 IliriBDL : So 4 of the A340s? Where will they be used until the PEK flight?
32 Silentbob : I thought there were a couple more 330-200s coming in the fall. Parker said five in 2009 just a couple weeks ago.
33 Wn676 : Three new aircraft types set to deliver by the end of the year and we haven't heard a single thing about them until now? Somehow I don't think this i
34 TheGMan : I agree. Why would US take all those E190s and then aquire two 318s later on? And US had never had a quad engine aircraft.

39 USAirALB : would be sweet though
40 D L X : Yes. Thank you for so kindly indulging my dorkness with that information.
41 Etops1 : There are no A340's on order . Only A330-200's .5 this year.
42 LACA773 : What PHX routes will these new birds be flying? Will they be doing a lot of West Coast transcons? The E90s would be great for West Coast operations,
43 Wn676 : They aren't picking up 318s. The west 321s currently operate MCO (566/567), FLL (181/35), LAX (35/567), and CLT (305/309).[Edited 2009-03-26 03:23:22

56 USAirALB : Whats the first N number for the 332, and when do you guys think we'll see it?
57 PM : N279AY
58 USAirALB : Are you sure...FAA says the number will be active 5/10. It's supposed to be April, not May.
59 Hondah35 : The new interior materials seem cheap. I was on a new 321 the other day and two of the plastic lens/covers over the reading light were already busted
