I was looking at flights for my trip to paris this summer, and I saw a itinerary for
a USAirways flight from Philadelphia to CDG on an A330, when is USAirways supposed to be acquiring these aircraft, and when they do I would really like to see a picture of it in their colors.

The first A330 is due to arrive from Toulouse to USairways in December of this year, with a further 6 arriving throughout 2000. Depending on the time it arrives you may see it operating the busy Christmas season, and from next year you'll see a lot more of them.

US Airways has delayed the start of service for the A-330 until May of 2000.

You stated that "US Airways delayed the start of service for the A-330." This is true, but it is because Airbus is falling behind on its delivery schedules not by US Airways choice. US Airways wants more wide-bodies as soon as they can get them (they've been looking for used 767s in GOOD CONDITION all year). They're loosing business due to aircraft shortages every day.

Airbus is learning a lesson that Boeing learned 18 months ago. That lesson is that selling more aircraft is one thing, ramping up production and delivering those same jets is another.

To my knowledge, the A330 will fly to all Atlantic destinations that the 767 currently serves, and the 767's will be flying trans-con (US) flights, as well as to Scotland (Glasgow).

I don't think USAirways currently does, or plans to fly to Glasgow.

They did announce new Manchester service starting next spring.
