I just found out that this spring break my family and I are going to Paris. Im really excited about going as I have never been to France. We will take US Airways from MKE-PHL which is on an ERJ-145 than PHL-CDG on an A330. The return is the reverse itenerary. I have never been on US Airways, to PHL, or have flown on an ERJ & A330. We may also use miles to upgrade to Envoy Class. What should I expect as far as service, comfort, and at PHL. Any information is appreciated.

In My Opinion USAirWays PVT System is the best Amoung All Airlines. Out Of US Carriers i like US Envoy and First Class the best.

I'm going to London on US Air on Thurs, so any other replies would be great.

Kjet: I'll let you know how our flights are. We fly on the A330 from PHL to LGW and from LGW to CLT. We have standby upgrade vouchers to Envoy so if we get Envoy I'll let you know how it is. Look for my trip report in a couple of weeks.

Anyone know the standby priority of ER1181 Tickets on US Air? I think we're ahead of Employees and Buddy passes, but of course not ahead of Freq Flyers.

Well, on your MKE-PHL leg you will be on a Chautauqua Airlines ERJ. I currently work on this aircraft and fly this route often. The only thing you'll get for inflight service is either pretzels, a cereal bar and a drink. However I think you will really enjoy your flight on the A-330. I've non-reved on this aircraft a few times. It has a very quiet comfortable cabin and the seats in coach have a good amount of legroom and have adjustable headrests. You will also have your on PTV in the seat so you won't be bored on the flight. Although I don't know how good the meal service is.

FanofTristars: ER-1181 travel certificates can be either Space Positive or Space Available. There is a spot where it is checked off on the certificate. If you've already got the tickets in hand, it should be marked accordingly. At the very least, one diagonal line means Space Positive and two means Space Available.

If it is Space Available, I'm afraid you're pretty much at the bottom of the priority list, as they go on the list at "S8" which comes after employees (S4) and buddies (S7). There is a chance you could have an agent that doesn't know, however and puts you on the list differently.

Kjet: As far as US' service, I've flown many times as both non-rev and paying passenger. It's quite good in any class and yes, the A330 entertainment can't be beat.

Arriving in PHL on the ERJ will put you at terminal F, which requires a shuttle bus ride to terminal C where you then have to walk to terminal A for the Paris flight. This will give you a good overview of the facility from the inside, and should take at least 15-20 minutes under normal circumstances. You remain in the secure area the whole time. PHL is prone to ATC delays and the runway/taxiway configuration makes ground congestion a problem during peak times, however if the weather is good there should be no extensive delays.

Bon voyage.
