>They won't begin receiving A330-200s until 2007<
If they are around then. I hope they are, because they have great service on the A333 with great PTVs, a great selection of movies, and decent food. Then again, their A321s and 757s are much more comfortable in Y
>Or is LGW
going to be an A333 and 762 next summer instead? I'm still amazed they're finding all these available 762s laying around. Either way they're operating at or near capacity in regards to widebodies. If one 762 should go technical is there going to be a backup available?
Also, 1 A333 runs MAD
in the summer, so if CDG
keep their A333s for the summer, they'll be running thin as well.<
They actually pissed me off with an A333 gone techincal at PHL
. They needed to repair/replace the nose, so our flight was delayed 1 hour, then 2, then finally 3 hours. That sucked. What pissed me off so badly is that even the US CSA admited they had a spare A333 on the ground there, but for some reason were not towing it out. Even she was mad.
Oh, for the person who talked about reporting a profit, they only timed they have returned a profit in a long time was when they recieved their exit financing to come out of bankruptcy. When the Alabama Pension Fund gave them their exit financing, US was able to report a profit based on the massive cash infusion. They have been reporting massive losses lately.
