Misleading headline.

It had an engine fire which was put out by the engine's fire suppression system. I bet this bird is flying again next week.

Next week?

I departed BUR for SFO at 3pm on UA 6310, and I saw no sign of any USAirways plane.

BUR does cover a lot of real estate. But there was no chatter whatsoever or media presence -- not at rental cars, not in the ticket lobby, not in TSA, and not at the concessions.

It was like just another boring day at BUR.

I think they call it a write off, followed by NTSB investigation and scrapping.

An Airbus with only 72 pax? Unless F was packed and Y was empty I can't imagine US made anything off that flight.

Considering it is a 7 am flight on a sunday morning, i'd say that its a decent load factor, especially if the plane is an A319 (124 seats)

Even if it's an A320 (150 seats), it's still a decent load factor for a sunday morning flight.

us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!

It's an A319, and you are correct. Loads on Sunday morning are usually very light...and I'd bet there were more than a couple nonrevs on board too.
