Just to show you how US aircrafts looked. There is more pictures on A.net of USS DC-9s but this picture is from quick find search.
US Airways is trying to get rid of B737-300s.
False. 8 737-300/400s have been or will shortly be coming out of MHV and reactivated into the US Airways fleet.
-maybe they are back in service but they are up for SALE.
US Airways Shuttle its still a Cash Cow.
Do you have the figures to back up that claim?
-unfortunately I dont have any written proof that they are still Cash Cow, but not long time ago I had discussion with WashBalt Spotters Club members about it. And please dont quote me on this that "this is rummor from some spotters". I dont want to go into details on this.
A319/320 in Shuttle division wont leave Shuttle for cross-country operations.
Why would they put a 320 on a cross country route when it is already configured for over water flying? The planes will be head to the sunny and warm Caribbean - not LAX or SFO.
-Ok, what I meant was that they not going to remove any shuttle aircrafts and place them in the service with mainline. They might use Shuttle equipment on weekends but thats it.
I still dont understand why they putting back in service 737-300/400s and putting in storage A319/320/321 ?
