US is most likely going to pick up PHX-FRA with the A333's coming online from the new order.
US has A330-200s on order, no further A333s.
There is no way an A330-300 of any variant could fly PHX-FRA.
|Quoting GlobeEx (Reply 21):|
Could the A333 actually do that trip with a good payload, looking at the hot weather in PHX?
No. Not at all.
|Quoting Itsnotfinals (Reply 26):|
PHX-FRA is on the edge for the A330 for sure in hot conditions.
Its even a little on the edge of the range of the A330-200 on PHX-FRA, but should be ok. FRA-PHX would be no problem.
[quote=itsnotfinals,reply=26]I have a few HP pilot buddies that say that FRA is possible if not with the A330 then possibly with A340's US Might pick up as rumored.
They'd have to cancel it for a few months after PHL-PEK starts since they will have a lapse in A340 coverage.

I think you mean A332s, though are those aircraft still on order or what?
Duh. Where you been, foo? They were reconfirmed.
