US Airways Transatlantic A-330 Y Product?

Sun Feb 03, 2008 4:02 pm

Hi Guys, I will fly to Charlotte from Frankfurt with US Airways in 3 weeks. What can I expect service like? AVOD? Free Alcohol? Meals? Lounge Access for fee?

Free Alcohol?

Thats of course the most important part eh?  duck 

I dont know how the service of US is... But you should've flown LH, there is alcohol for free in all classes and they offer a good service  Smile

I have to admit. I don't like to fly LH! First of all US is about €340 incl. (LH is more than € 150 more!), second of all they do not offer PTV's and they fly via MUC and I like to fly direct from Frankfurt! I was just wondering about the alcohol on bord, I personally don 't drink!  Smile

Currently LH is putting PTVs in their long haul aircrafts, so soon you can fly LH and have PTV Big grin

Frankfurt airport sucks! Munich is so much better! Easier to find your gate! But I can understand that you want to go directly!

Same here! I never had a drop of alcohol in my life in an aircraft!!

As long as he's on the A333 he will. It wouldn't surprise me if LH installs them on the A343 in the future.

amen!

I agree though. I love LH, but hate FRA. Then again I wouldn't touch US with a 10 foot pole. Afterall my A330s (NW) are nicer than yours (US).  Big grin
The air in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious because it's the same the angels breathe.

You will be charged 4 EUR or 5 USD for alcohol.
But the 150 EUR price difference can buy you a
lot of booze on board.

If you don't have a pair of earphones they sell them
also for the same price as alcohol and you can keep
them for future flights. The AVOD system is actually
pretty good on their 333s.

What date are you flying this because i am on this
flight on the 24th (from the FRA meet that weekend)

By the way, try to get a seat in the mid-cabin section
between the 2 L/R and 3 L/R doors as this section has
more seat pitch than the seats in the back section.
fly high, pay low...Germanwings!

US Airways AVOD is older and outdated compared to the likes of DL, NW, CO, the new AA.

Quoting Delta777Jet (Thread starter):
Free Alcohol?

Ha, no, NW is the only US carrier remaining that gives free alcohol accross the pond.

Quoting Delta777Jet (Thread starter):
Meals?

Typical pasta or chicken. Don't expect it to fill you up in any which way.

Quoting Delta777Jet (Thread starter):
Lounge Access for fee?

Not sure about US, I know NW offers Worldclubs day pass for I believe $45, they offer it when you buy the ticket and sometimes when you check in.
