In the summer, there is usually a 762 that flies PHL-BDA. This summer there is just a daily 320, in which I am kind of disapointed. Could there be a schedule change and it will go 767? Or was the route performing that bad? Or did they take it off to do CDG from CLT.

Whether a quick hop with the 767 was a "good use" or not probably depended a lot on whether there was a lot of cargo on the route. They were using the A319 from LGA until the past couple of years, and it was a decent ride. I think B6's entry probably made it a less-profitable route fare-wise from LGA. From US's PHL hub, if there was enough cargo then the 767 may have made sense. It's such a short flight that the A320 isn't going to be straining to lift lots of fuel, notwithstanding the fact that the alternate is probably a lttle farther away than usual... so if the cargo doesn't bulk out, it's probably an adequate replacement.
