I was talking with a F/A on a flight from CLT
last weekend and he has read a memo that First Class seating will be reduced to just 8 seats on the 757s? Sounds pretty drastic, I could see maybe 12 or 16 seats, but 8?? He says the plan is to use the 757 on higher density, lower yield routes, such as Florida. Sound familiar? Current configuration on the US B757 is F24Y158. The plan is to increase total seating to 203. Interesting. And what about the A321 which is configured for F26Y143? I always thought that was way too big of a First Class section for the type of flying US does. I wonder what the plans are for the 321s? Look for a few changes at US Airways next year, this is only the beginning.
