Does anyone know why some of the US Airways Shuttle 727-200s have no windowshades? The tracks are there but the shades aren't. I've asked the flight attendants, and they say it is to reduce weight. This sounds like an answer they made up because they don't know. One of them didn't even know there were no shades until I pointed it out to her. If they can afford to fly fuel-guzzling 727s with a three-person cockpit crew, why would they be concerned about the weight of the windowshades?
