But before US Airways and America West merged they both placed large orders for Airbus A320 family aircraft to replace their ageing 733 and 734 fleets.
Even though both airlines have taken delivery of a large number of Airbus they continue to fly over 120 737's, and these are some of the first 737-300/400's devliered. Their outstanding order of A320's is not enough to replace all the 737's and was wondering if there were any plans for this ageing fleet?
I do however notice a number of 737's are being painted in the new colours (and look very smart too!), so I assume will be going no where soon... Will they give them a makeover on the inside? - As the ones I have flown on (in the US Airways fleet), look very tired and worn.
