US hasn't really announced a new route since June when they started PHL to Quebec City. I just flew PHX to MSY via CLT and seems they could start up PHX to MSY direct easily. Seems like there will be some aircraft free with the recent reductions announced in the de-hubbing of LAS. Anyone know any new routes coming?

I think any new routes in the foreseeable future are going to be out of DCA that are related to the slot deal. Routes that have been rumored include MSN, GRR (Which US pulled out of right after the HP merger), as well as YUL, and YOW service from DCA to supplement existing service.

Are there any new "long haul" routes in their future?

I think they're going to focus on Latin America as their long haul now. Mainly getting more routes to EZE, GRU, LIM and maybe SCL. Although I don't know if these will work from CLT or PHL.

Probably not until 2013, which is when the A332 delivieries resume.

I agree with you on Latin America, however SCL will definitly not work from CLT, and EZE probably won't work either. The only LatAm cities that will work for CLT are GIG, GRU, BOG, and LIM. I don't see US flying to South America from PHL.

I think they need a new hub for Latin America. MIA is taken by AA, NYC is taken by the rest of the carriers in the US, ATL is taken by DL, IAH and DFW are taken by their respective carriers, DCA has the perimeter rule, MCO probably won't have as much demand, FLL is too low-yeilding, they pretty much missed the boat to Latin America outside of Brazil.

They still need route authorities and aircraft for those routes so I am not sure how much more they can focus on outside of the EZE and coming GRU routes.

US hasn't really added routes in a long time and rather has entrenched back into their core hubs and soon DCA. As much as it surprises me to say it this may be a pretty good approach until more widebodies arrive and hopefully the economy finally rights itself.

Wouldn't mind seeing US restart this route; HP flew this until Katrina - don't remember if it ever got restarted (don't believe so).

Would love to see some expansion out of PHX - could PHX-SCL work? Ok, realistically, I think the best you'd see out of PHX would be Canadian service - could PHX-YYJ work? What about PHX-YWG? There's also a sizable Asian American community in the Valley - some kind of Asian service could do well.

On the East side - could CLT-YHZ service work? Flew from ATL-YHZ last week on DL - they seem to do pretty well on the route. Yes, ATL & CLT are different animals, but there's got to be enough demand to at least cover one seasonal flight.

I'm surprised that few have mentioned a return to some of the cities that US orphaned after the PIT dehubbing, but via CLT and/or PHL this time.

Yes, MSN and GRR have been mentioned as possibilities once the slot swap is completed. Buit how about the likes of LAN, SBN, FWA, BMI, EVV, and TOL? I'm sure that US still has loyal customers in many of these cities. In fact, I saw one person paying at an FWA-area Kroger (supermarket) with a US Airways MasterCard not all that long ago.

I will go one more on you. ATW. I know its an extreme longshot and likely won't happen, but ATW is still the HQ of ZW, who is the largest USAirways Express carrier at the moment. With F9 pulling out, you have UA to ORD, and DL to their three main hubs (MSP, DTW, and ATL), but with a lot of the traffic out of ATW being east coast bound business travellers, DCA could work, and it would provide easy connections to most of the places that you can't get to non stop anyways. ATW is home to Pierce manufacturing and many Fire Departments across the country send their officers to ATW to be trained on Pierce Firetrucks, and with the population density being what it is out east, I could see this working.

Supposedly US Airways is in the market for some used 767s with better payload and range for GIG...With US Airways current 767s their GIG from CLT flight is either oversold with passengers or cargo and one keeps getting bumped always due to weight restrictions... I guess if they leased some more 767s that would open possibilities for a few more routes.

You sure its about weight restriction? The 762ER has ALOT of range. El Al did MIA-TLV on them. CLT-GIG shouldn't really be a problem... Could it be runway restrictions?

US has very early build 762s that have less range then newer 762 models. There 767s had to make fuel stops on their CLT-HNL run also.

Whappeh just beat be to it.

With the reduction at former focus city LAS and the basic end of service to LGA thru the slot swap with Delta the writing is on the wall. US is trying to make there operations at the hubs profitable so they look favorable to buyouts or a potential merger.... but who really wants US?

The 762 range issue is really the only reason GIG makes more sense than EZE. EZE is enough larger than GIG that it makes more sense any time an airplane can do either. I agree with you that SCL is absolutely out of the question, though. I'm pretty skeptical about IAH-SCL, and that's a much, much stronger route.

Yes, probably 4-5 times as much O/D as CLT. CLT really is not a very big city.

I think the biggest holes in US's route system are links between SLC and OMA and the eastern hubs. I think CLT-OMA would be a great route to use some of the CR9's freed by the LAS shutdown on. Maybe they could convince Republic to switch OMA-DCA from F9 express to USX?
