Well if it isn't my old chum FLY. As a former Pratt employee, we both can find mittance in USAirways' outsourcing of maintenance. There would be little feasibility in taking the maintenance in house, not to mention the gangrenous affect it would have on their P/L to funnel such funds for maintenance of a fleet that may never mature beyond 10 airframes.
UAL, however has no use for the -330s. ALPA regs. prohibit pilots from 320s using seniority to jump to widebody aircraft; (OTR, this has thrown a cog in NW's entire fleet modernization plan...717? 330/340? 777?). The -330s would only be in addition to a large Boeing twinjet family tree. It would undermine any progress in standardization.
About the 73Gs, yes...right next to the People Express A3XX. United has focues their efforts on Airbus single-aisle short/medium haul aircraft.
