Question About US Airways First/Envoy

Tue Oct 13, 2009 4:56 pm

I recently booked an award ticket on US Airways to MEX.

While the stated equipment is an A321 on both flights from/to PHX, it appears that the forward class cabin is branded as Envoy.

I guess that since the flight is international, it makes some sense, but, is the traditional Envoy inflight service provided (ie, menus, meal choices, amenity kit, newspapers, etc)?

Nope - it's akin to domestic first class in service as well as the seat as you already deduced.

It's only a ~3hr flight anyway, so besides a selection between 2 meal entries and comped alcohol, you'll just enjoy the larger seat pitch.

That's odd, as I've never seen an A321 go to MEX, and Envoy seats are only on East 757, 767, and A330 aircraft

What day are you flying out on?

MX took me from SFO to ZIH; SFO-MEX nonstop on an A320 (the same aircraft continued on to Zihua, after we all cleared customs at MEX).
Pancakes are delicious.

Its just a coding mistake on the new US website...it will be domestic first class service.

Indeed... just checked the flight schedule for the next three months. PHX-MEX is an A320, with regular domestic First service.

Have fun!
