Thanks, ILUV767, but I'm looking for the number of aircraft, if known.

Go to www.usairways.com
Click on fleet information, and they have the numbers there.

Their site's a little out of date. It doesn't even mention the A321s.

The A321 began revenue service on the PHL-LAX route with the first aircraft just two weeks ago.

US Airways has an impressive roster of Airbus jets in what is a fairly new fleet, but has a long way to go in
terms of rationalizing its fleet and bringing its operating
cost structure under control. It still has a lot of DC9's,
MD80's, and the F100's which are sort of oddballs in
the fleet. The 727's are gone and the 737-200's are
not that old, many of which were delivered in the early
1980's but should be replaced with 737-300 aircraft
on metrojet routes as more A320 family jets are
delivered.

All I can say is that US AIRWAYS is one of the best airlines I ever flown with. I think there service is better than Air Canada. I have flown on their 737-300/400, 757-200, MD-80. there aircraft are great.

CO-EWR, how do you define "a long way to go?"

There are now just 60 DC9 and MD80 planes in the entire fleet of 432.

All labor wages are industry average.

BTW, the exact numbers (according to the FAA) are:

A320 - 94 (66 319s, 24 320s, 4 321s)
A330 - 8
737 - 183 (44 732s, 85 733s, 54 734s)
757/767 - 46 (34 757s, 12 767s)
DC9 - 61 (30 D93s, 31 MadDogs)
F28 - 40 (all F100s (F28-MK0100))
Total - 432


This happens to be the largest fleet in US history.

US Airways has created a leasing division and is placing their 737-200s with other airlines. I believe both Canjet and Vanguard are dry-leasing US ships.

The F100s of course are going to AA if the deal goes through.
