AA/US To Begin A-333 Flight To MIA

Wed Aug 27, 2014 1:22 pm

According to USAirways.com, US will upgauge one flight to a A333 on PHL-MIA-PHL on 06NOV14.

US 2051 PHL 09:40 MIA 12:43
US 710 MIA 14:00 PHL 16:44

Could this be the beginning of further A333 destinations out of MIA by LUS?

If you recall, US actually flew A333s commercially into MIA when they first received the type back in 2000.

It's possible. But I think it's more likely trying to take advantage of some downtime on the 330 fleet. A 4pm arrival back in PHL allows it to fly to Europe that night.

Awesome, now I don't have to fly to MCO to get a suites product on a domestic leg. I'm hoping the prices are low as always, one way fares up front are only around $250 USD, which is a bargain for me!   I'm also trying to get on the 762 and Envoy 757, we'll see where that goes.

Interesting. Clearly a time slot that the plane may have been sitting on the ground anyway. But also maybe done to give AA ground crews in MIA some training and experience on the A330 for future plans?

Remember that for years (maybe still?) US flew an A333 waiting for the Euro bank down to SJU and back. Sending it to MIA seems quite natural, as its a hub and a bit closer to PHL in case of any delay.

I'd imagine that has something to do with it, as well.

They still do seasonally. They also fly the 332 seasonally PHL-SJU, as well as PHL-MCO and PHL-PUJ.
We don’t care what your next flight is.

Quoting LPDAL (Reply 3):

Lowest F fares price at $355 each way, but new Lunch service is provided on both flights. Book on US website because same flight booked on AA.com prices at $604, almost twice as much as AA's own F class fare MIA-PHL-MIA. They could do better matching fares even with different computer systems which has been an on-going issue with AA/US for months.
watch what you want. you may get it.

US has quite a bit of slack with the 330s in the winter. I suspect they will quickly cycle all of these frames into the paint shop once we get to the slow winter season.

However on NOV 6 you also see the 330 on
PHL-PUJ 332
PHL-SJU 332
PHL-CUN 333
CLT-SJU 332
PHL-MCO 332 (x2)

On a similar note, I noticed US will be taking over some LAS flights in Feb, flying A321 from ORD-LAS.

The high passenger count and massive cargo load of A333 are a natural fit for Miami to points south, in the future.
