I was just looking through US Airways new timetables and according to the March 3 edition will cut ALL transatlantic flights down to one a WEEK from March 30. Is this temporary? and why are they doing this?

Looking at the timetable the reason is simple now. The timetable ends March 31, and March 30 is a Saturday, March 31 is a Sunday. So those flights that become effective March 30 are only in that timetable for two days. Hence, you will only see 6(Sat) and/or 7(Sun) for the new flights. When the April timetable comes out, it will look like it's back to daily/6x weekly again.

I also think that what you saw might be a quirck, as that is about the time the time changes and some schedules are confusing around those periods. I ran across something similar recently when I was booking a SW flight near the end of their booking period. A few days later a new period opened up and the mystery was solved.

It is a combination of 2 things:
1) The timetable ends on the weekend in question.
2) A "time change" occurs during the overnight of Saturday 30 March/Sunday 31 March. Europe starts "summer time" which creates an additional hour of time difference. Unique schedules will exist for that evening. America makes the switch the following weekend.
