I thought they had more A330s than that? How come so many 767s are still plying the Atlantic?

767s are useful cos they hold about 170 pax (they are after all -200s) whereas the A330 is more like 260 pax. A second A330 would lose a tonne of money with 100 empty seats but a full 767-200 is a nice little earner.

Any sign of CLT-CDG? Would love to see that be an A333!

CLT-CDG is not coming back. Neither is PHL-BRU. Those are permanent.

I'm pleased to see that they gave PIT-CDG priority over PHL-BRU and CLT-CDG.

US Airways should think about replacing their aging 767-200ERs with some new long range A330-200s.
