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?

That is not a good sign...what will they do with their new A330s, as well as the 767-200s they fly over the pond as well?

It's probably just a temporary thing.

Things are looking bad for US Airways if they are cutting Transatlantic routes to weekly.

They are not cutting trans-Atlantic routes to weekly. What you see is an error. They did however...

End PHL-BRU, PIT-CDG, and CLT-CDG

Suspend PIT-LGW and CLT-FRA

Not true. OAG is still showing daily flights for PHL-LGW/CDG/FCO(back to daily actually)/MAD/MAN/FRA. It might just be a misread in the timetable.

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.
