Nice report, and wonderful pictures. Traveling in F (or Y) is fun!
I do have to say, those F seats look like the ones on the 737-400 on Alaska, minus the headrest. The middle console looks similar, the seat pocket does, and the general shape. Just a different color. Maybe they are a newer version of the older AS seat?

Some really nice pics! Looked like a great day for flying.
The airport on your JFK-CLT flight was IAD, and at a guess I'd say the river was either the Susquehanna or the Potomac...
Surprised other airline's FAs got into the F cabin on these flights. You'd think a major business destination to a hub would fill with elites...maybe the LGA moreso though.

Not much of a true first class product that US offers. Not even real glasses and just snacks, not all that different then FL now is it.

Nice report. You don't get a lot of US Airways trip reports out of JFK. Charlotte is US Airways' biggest hub. I believe they have 574 departures per day. The one time I flew US Airways out of JFK was in May 2007, JFK-LAS. It was an Airbus A320, painted in the new livery, but was an ex-America West interior. It was a very good flight. Left on time. Arrived on time.

That sounds like a fun trip! For me the fun would be going to JFK, but you're probably bored with all that!
Anyway, great pictures and descriptions. I was thinking that was IAD also, but wasn't going to speak up because I'm not sure of myself, but glad others have filled you in on that.
I'm glad you had a good experience on US. It seems they get such poor press here, but I had two really good experiences with them about a month ago (a trip report I haven't done yet..sorry!).
Thanks for sharing!

The reason you did not see any other airlines is because you were on the starboard side of the aircraft, and landed on 18C. If you had been on the port side A concourse would have been clearly visible, and that is where everyone else is.
|Quoting Flyboy7974 (Reply 10):|
Being both flights were original HP aircraft, probably reason for having the old HP seats.
|Quoting JFKALLTHEWAY (Reply 14):|
how come i cant see any of the pictures? It just says photobucket bandwith exceeded please upgrade to pro...
|Quoting JFKMan (Reply 11):|
No not real glass...but thats no surprise nowadays sadly. And its just snacks because it was a short flight. It would be the same on any airline.
|Quoting JFKMan (Reply 18):|
check out my other TR. I went on US in F class from JFK to PHX. For breakfast, it was served on real plates with real silverwear. I have pictures of the meal.
I don't know for sure, but I think the US F class leg room is similar to others. I know it is similar for Alaska Air and Delta is actually a little tighter. (I think its DL...possibly UA)

My point is, when you pay premium prices for a premium product, one could at least expect a proper glass
