On US Airways Shuttle the safety card reads: "Airbus A320 EOW." What does the EOW stand for? Extended Over Water? Does this have anything to do with ETOPS, because I didn't think the A320 was ETOPS certified. Thanks for your help!

These aircraft are equipped with additional safety equipment, such as liferafts and lifevests, which allows them to be used for over-water flying. I'm sure there are other features, too...

US operates a number of 737s that cannot fly overwater (i.e., no Carribbean destinations). They have only seat cushion floatation devices; others are equipped with the lifevests and rafts.
