US Airways PHL Eagles A319 Coming Soon!

Mon Sep 11, 2006 2:33 am

Does anyone have any update as to when the US Airways Philadelphia Eagles theme plane is scheduled to be finished? Preliminary reports say Sept. 15, however, it wasn't clear as to if that was when it was to go into the paint shop, or be finished. The aircraft to be used is N709UW. Exciting things are happening at the New US Airways!

Without going through the data base, what type of aircraft, and is a theme plane scheduled for Carolina?

N709UW is an A319. And there is nothing confirmed at this time as far as Carolina.

The Eagles theme plane doesn't rate a 757 like the Cardinals and Diamondbacks??

I thought I read a couple weeks ago that they decided to keep the old theme planes and do new ones such as the Eagles. Are they going to do away with the 757 theme planes and just re-paint more 319's in theme liveries?

I think what he meant was that a 757 seems to be the more appropriate tpye of airplane for a theme airplane, as it would seem that woul dbe the type of airplane the team would charter to away games. Has nothing to do with what is happening to the Cards and D-backs jets.

It's completely moot as the Eagles do not use US for their charters, though they do have a deal with them to be their "official airline" strictly for marketing purposes...in the past they've used NW, it looks like this season they have swapped to DL for charters...

And how is a special paint job "picking up?" I'd be trying to batten down them finances for the long run and worry about the details of the merger now that they're getting up and rolling with it, but hey, that's why I don't run an airline.

The Eagles?

Please, like Carolina wont end up stomping them this year anyway. Clearly we need a US Airways Panthers scheme!  Wink

Clearly the best plane would have been a Five-Time Super Bowl Champs Steelers A319. So what if they don't have a hub in da burgh anymore. It would be kind of an apology for screwing over Pittsburgh and more people would obviously like it anyway, the Steelers having the largest fan base in the country, it could fly anywhere and be welcomed. Plus the Eagles suck.

I'm sure there are people that will not board it if it shows up at IAD or DCA.

Perhaps, but you know, I simply can't see the Eagles travelling by 319.

Gee, I thought the Dallas Cowboys still had the largest fan base... I know the Tennessee Titans have the largest radio network. The Steelers are usually good, but they are by no means the national favorite. And besides, they only one last year because of the referee-ing.

And to keep this on topic, the plane should look nice... though I'd like to see someone do a Titans theme-plane, personally.  Big grin

I find this quite amusing, considering both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers are better than the Eagles. This is no shock from US though. Pittsburgh could win the Superbowl 30 times, and US still wouldn't notice.

Here's a concept of what it could look like. I hear that the real thing will stick to the regular US livery more closely though, but this rendition looks pretty cool...

I've seen pics of it. It will have a white fusalage on the top and say "US Airways" as the rest of the fleet, but will have a green belly that will make a swoosh up into the tail, where the eagle's head will be placed (and will take up much of the verticle stab). The Philadelphia Eagles logo will be forward just under the cockpit windows. And of course, the Heritage Logo to the right of the L1 door.

Why would they not do the Panthers before the Eagles?

I was thinking mainly becasue CLT is where their biggest hub is, PHL is second.

Is there any other reasoning why they are doing the Eagles first?

I think US was the official airline of the Eagles back in the days of the GoFares push. Maybe they still have ties with the Eagles.

They still are the "official" airline of the Eagles. I drive past a big sign saying so outside Lincoln Financhial Field when going to and from work.
