Hi,
I would be grateful if someone could let me know on which US-Europe routes US Airways continues to use the Boeing 767-200 model. Not too many of those around and I want to make sure I catch a ride on one before they are all retired.

Many thanks!

Does it need to be Europe? You could come to GIG as US flies CLT-GIG daily with the 762.

Seasonal PHL-ATH. It was supposed to be upgraded to an A332 this summer but they've reverted to the 762.

As strange as it sounds, ATH was not supposed to be upgraded. PHL-BCN was to operate with an A332 but is now showing as a B762.

About time DUB gets upgraded back to a 76! Im sick of loading 4,000 lbs of Intel CPU Cases + 5,000 lbs of Mail in that tight front bin of a 75.

Even though the A330-200 is considered an eventual replacement for the 767-200's US Airways operates, they do have a seating difference of over 50 seats!

If the ATH and BCN routes are considered marginal routes, due to the slow recovery from this recent economic crisis, they may simply not be considered ecomical to fly an A330-200 with all this additional capacity that ma not be required!

Also US Airways recently reduced the number of A330's it will receive from Airbus over the next few years at a far slower rate, so their may simply not be the available metal to fly these routes with the new aircraft, and the ones they do have in the fleet will fly routes to Europe which are considered worthy of upgrading from a 767 to a 332.

With 284 and 285 coming onto property in March. The company better get going on deciding where to send those additional frames. What's better... to send out a 332 on a route with the additional 50 seats (some are likely to be open) or just have them sitting all day at the Deice pad in PHL. ATH still needs that upgrade much more than BCN. They just must enjoy having a 762 stop in BGR on the way back everyday.

Several months ago the flight was indeed scheduled as a 332, but was changed back to a 762. Here's the link:

Wow it was showing for only 16 days...no wonder I never saw it. As I recall BCN was still scheduled for a 332 even after US postponed deliveries, which doesn't make a lot of sense since you'd think they would have done that the other way around. Oh well, thanks for the link.

If you're in the US (apparently not the case for the OP based on his flag) the shortest hop would probably be on the PHL-SJU-PHL route.

Actually, PHL-CLT would be a bit shorter...

Is that much money lost by flying a partially empty 332 vs 767, or was it a decision to use the 332 on a route that needed more capacity?

If there are that many extra 332's hanging around, where would the airplane be placed instead, or do they just sit unused?

Not all of them, but they have a subfleet of 757s which they equipped with Envoy and rearranged the seating configuration, and use these planes on certain TATL routes.

Does anyone have the new numbers on the 767's? (I know someone does!)
I know N645US became N245AY. It seems they just changed the 6 to a 2.
Thanks.

I thought a few routes to Europe were occasionally operated by the 767 that were usually operated by the A330 (to FRA) but maybe this was/is just in the winter. Anyway, I understand, while flying on new aircraft can be enjoyable, it is good to fly on older ones while they are around. I want to fly on the A333 before it gets the new seats later this year, just for old times sake. Thanks!
