US Airways A320 IFE

Mon Nov 28, 2011 7:21 pm

I will be flying tomorrow from ONT to EWR via PHX on US Airways. Both flights are scheduled on A320's. When looking through the US Airways website, I don't see any entertainment information for this plane. Does anyone know the status of IFE for these planes, if any at all? Do they even have WiFi? What about power ports? Its been a year or so since I flew on US, but that was on an A321, with no IFE but it did have WiFi. What can I expect on my flights? Thanks in advance!

US Airways doesn't offer IFE on any domestic flight within the lower 48 states.

You won't get anything. Only the A321s have Wi-Fi. US Airways does have a great magazine though.

Wow, that's a surprise, considering how most of the other major carriers are now enhancing their in-flight products, including domestically. Unfortunately, I didn't book this trip, otherwise I would have chosen a different airline.

I'll be sure to read it!

Yes we took it out since no one was using it. Quite frankly when I look back... I really wonder why we didn't take it out sooner lol. Rumor has it from several friends who work in Tempe that Wifi will come to the rest of the 320 family sooner than later. Usage rates have been improving on the 321s...

I'd say get it on the 319s if at all possible. I bet it would be a hit on the Shuttle, even if people only had access to it for 10 minutes. If they can afford to take the Shuttle, they can afford the Wi-Fi (that is, if they're even the ones paying  ).
