US To Fly A332 To MCO

From October 28th to November 18th, US will fly a A332 on CLT-MCO.

Also, during this time, there will be a daily B767 flying this route as well. This in addition to the A321s, B757s, and B734s this route sees.

ALSO, PHL-MCO will see two daily B767s during this time, in addition to the B757s, A320s, and A321s this route sees.

I don't think US has ever flown this many heavies into MCO before. Why the weird surge of capacity all of a sudden?

Edit: An A332 will also fly CLT-PHL during this time period.

Well it is Fall/Winter and they probably have a lot of slack in their widebody fleet from all the seasonal TATL reductions, might as well do something with those planes right?

If they're gonna put the 332 on CLTGIG they might as well swing it on home and send it onward to MCO

Actually, the plane will fly CLT-GIG-CLT-MCO so yeah! Flight 800/801.

The 332 on CLTGIG continues until the Spring, dont know why CLTMCO on the 332 wouldn't continue.

I think it is only showing as a 332 through November 18th as that is when the dummy schedule starts again

I feel you may be right. It just would not make sense to fly one of your largest aircraft during a time when MCO travel isn't peak. Hope it continues through the winter.

Smart move. MCO probably is one of the key markets on GIG-CLT.
US is doing very well their home work to increase profitability and to prepare for the launch of CLT-GRU and who knows next.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

They were quick to change the termination of flight 800/801 from Philadelphia to Orlando right after the route launched. I hear from a lot of people that there are a lot of families travelling to/from Disney on the flight, and I wonder how the new MCO-GIG flight will effect CLT-GIG.

Do you have any updates on that route?

Now that GRU is a public-private partnership, it will be easy to believe they will offer the slots in order US can start the route by the end of March 2013 (IATA summer schedule)

US will have a great product to compete and JJ yields on GIG-MCO are expected to be very high (fares start around USD 1,800 round trip for January) so there's room for US to obtain something around USD 1,600 easily. And it seems they are getting them during the first three weeks of January.
Remember, JJ GIG-MCO is daylight.

I think this is some kind of utilization flight, just like someone mentioned previously. A similar example would be the SJU STT flights, where they sometimes get A330.

The 800/801 flight tags doesn't really have anything to do with it. For example, flight 797 goes from LAX to PHL and then TLV. It is however not the same aircraft flying both routes, and through pax have to change planes in PHL.

However, as someone mentioned, FL to South America is key to US, so they might as well put it a 332 if there is time to do that.

There is no MCO-GIG flight. Pax needs to change planes and transfer in CLT if they are on US801 going to MCO after arriving from GIG.

I think they are waiting for Brazil's approval

He meant the MCO-GIG daily nonstop service that JJ will launch this winter season.

It wasn't that quick. I think it lasted for two seasons, IIRC.

It's traditional for that operating carrier to retire the flight number (in this case AA), but DL and UA operate a flight 800 as well.

Generally, only the airline whose flight number is involved retires a flight number after a crash, and even that is not always the case.

For example, flight numbers 11, 77, 93, and 175 are used by airlines other than UA and AA. CO used flight #11 for it's CDG-IAH flight until 2009, even though that was the flight number of the first fatal airline bombing.

Why? It wasn't their airline that had the incident.

Delta has a flight 800 on Saturdays ATL-BOS.
United 800 is a daily SNA-EWR

Not to mention, with US Airways the 7xx flight series are Trans-Atlantic flights. Given that, it's not shocking that South America gets the 8xx. Wouldn't be shocked if CLT-GRU became US802/803.

Yup - ORL-RIO on US is essential to US making the CLT-RIO flight work.

Having the same flight number for MCO-CLT-GIG does help when it comes to placement in the GDSs. Nonstops come first in the display, then directs, then connections. For what it's worth, Delta's ATL-GRU flight tags to MCO, for the exact same reasons.

I just find it odd that during this time, US will be flying larger aircraft into MCO than any other US airline..even larger than DL...my how times have changed.

That's true. I wonder if DL will respond to this by adding a widebody on some routes? Would they consider putting a 767 on ATL or DTW routes like they used to?

Indeed...all one has to do is go to Disney or Universal and you would swear you just time travelled to Rio or Sao Paulo lol...Why Disney?Universal hasn't opened up a park in Brazil is beyond me.


25 DeltAirlines : It isn't just the parks - there is a large amount of Brazilian traffic that will go to the shops in Orlando and bring home the maximum baggage allowa
26 mcogator : Yes, bazilions of Brazilions get dropped off/picked up by rows of buses at the area outlets. I can't blame them either compared to prices overseas.
