I fly from BDL
at least once and sometimes twice a year; I usually fly US because they seem to offer the best schedule and prices. I try and book 737's (or 757's, if available) being the ardent Boeing fan that I am; last March I flew down via CLT
, and all flights on one segment were 737's and the other segment were all A320's (I don't remember which was which). I just booked another flight for October, and all segments were on 737's for all available flights (except for a few that were regional jets.) I am flying via CLT
on the outbound flight and back via PHL
, and I did not see an A320 on any of the options available. I thought US was phasing the 737's out; what gives? Also, I am flying this week to CLT
; originally I was scheduled to return on a 757 but it was changed to a CR9. The trip down is on a 737, but when I booked it a couple of months ago there were flights on an A320 available.
