US Airways 700er Flight Numbers

Hi everyone,

I'm a frequent passenger of US Airways' MUC-PHL route (US 706/707) and always check other peoples' luggage tags while standing at the conveyor belt before customs. I've noticed that a substantial number of passengers connect to US Airways flights to MCO (I think that's correct). I later found out that flight 707 is routed MUC-PHL-MCO. I also flew PHL-FLL this January and was surprised to also find a 700er flight number. I believe US Airways also assigns 700er flight numbers to its transatlantic flights (see http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...eral_aviation/read.main/3111299/).

So, my question then: Is there some sort of pattern here. i.e. Is US Airways routing direct flights Europe-PHL-Florida?

It could just be spurious correlation, but I thought I'd check  Smile

Maybe a more general question of mine would be: What US cities does US Airways direct its trans-Atlantic flight numbers to?

Here's a list of continuing cities

AMS: BOS
CDG: LAX
DUB: ORD
FCO: CLT
FRA: ORD
LGW: LAX and LAS (routes LAX-LAS-PHL-LGW and LGW-PHL-LAS)
LHR: SFO (westbound only; no continuation eastbound)
MAD: MIA
MAN: MCO
MUC: MCO
ZRH: TPA

CLT-FRA: LAX eastbound, SFO westbound
CLT-LGW: MCO

There are a lot of Florida cities, but not all Florida cities by any means. The one that jumps out to me as probably intentional is MIA-MAD, but some others may be too.

Thanks. I had a feeling not everything was going to be Florida. I actually knew FRA went on to ORD. Funny I didn't think of that one. Interesting though how I didn't think about it.

Seems like Florida and Trans-Cons are popular. Exceptions are CLT, BOS and ORD (all of which have substantial star presence - at least focus city wise in the case of BOS).

...and the rest of the seasonal cities

ARN: SEA
ATH: MSY
BCN: MIA (big surprise)
BHX: MCO
BRU: I could not find a continuation city either eastbound or westbound; perhaps someone else can. Flight numbers are 750/751.
GLA: RDU
LIS: JAX
OSL: FLL
SNN: TPA westbound only (oddly, the *A timetable doesn't find any single connection eastbound on TPA-SNN)
TLV: LAX eastbound, apparently no continuation eastbound
VCE: TPA

I also missed MXP, which is currently operating, earlier
MXP: FLL

All of last Summer and up until this newest Schedule being loaded the Thru Flight was always DEN. For a short time last Summer if I recall it was LAS for one Schedule.

I'm sure Scheduling will make another Thru Flight up for BRU on the next major Schedule.
