You're correct,

126-seat Boeing 737-300 aircraft and 120-seat Airbus A319 aircraft in dual-class configuration. Both aircraft offer 12 First Class seats.

I know in the past US had utilized A320 and A319. Lack of demand must have caused them to switch to the 733. I remember the days of the 727-200s, oh well.

They're standard US Airways 733s...they don't even have the Shuttle titles on the plane anymore. It allows them to swap out any 733 they have for the shuttle, thus increasing aircraft utilization.

Now that their Airbus fleet has been reconfigured, do they still fly with the Shuttle titles?

I flew the A319 LGA-DCA last week and it had regular US Airways titles. No shuttle titles on any of the Airbii at LGA and DCA.

Yup, after spending all day at PHL last Sunday. I was wondering why I hadn't seen a single shuttle.

I flew the shuttle on Saturday LGA-BOS on a 737-300. They fly a mix of A319s and 733s BOS-LGA on weekends, but during the week it is A319s with 1 or 2 320s. BOS-DCA is 737s.
