I've heard that Air Canada has tentatively agreed to take all 9 US Airways aircraft, pending the outcome of the UA/US integration. Has anyone read or know this is fact? Makes sense, though, since the A330 would really be, a sort of oddball in UA's fleet. OR, will it? Time will tell.

DLX, we CURRENTLY have 9 333s in the fleet. The 10th example, which is the last one on FIRM order, is supposedly deferred until late next year, or early 2003. I don't think we'll see it in US Airways colors though....realistically.I've spoken to a few pilots who fly the 333, and this is where the AC rumor comes from. None of the crews think that the 333 will ever see UA colors.
