American Airlines/US Airways

Postby Duane Charles » May 25th, 2014, 8:29 am

Hi All,
I have a couple of questions with regard to the merger and hopefully someone can help me out please?

1a) Are the US Airways aircraft being painted in the new American Airlines scheme?
1b) Has anyone seen a US Airways plane in the new colours?

2a) Will US Airways flights use "American" or "Cactus" as their callsign?
2b)If they do change to "American", does anyone know when this change takes affect?


Many thanks
Duane

1a) Are the US Airways aircraft being painted in the new American Airlines scheme?
Yes they have started. Believe they have re painted 7 A319s, and taken delivery of 1 US Airways A321 that was delivered in AA clours. Towards the end of the year, they expect to start on the A330s. Planes in the new colours are still opereated as US Airways and use the Catus callsign.

1b) Has anyone seen a US Airways plane in the new colours?
If you are in the States, you will see the A319s. Becoming a common sight now at airports.

2a) Will US Airways flights use "American" or "Cactus" as their callsign?
Once the merger is complete and they are using a single operating certificate, American will be the only callsign used.

2b)If they do change to "American", does anyone know when this change takes affect?
Probably take 2 years or so to get onto a single operating certificate. Until then, they will still be operated as separate airlines (even though some US Airways flights will be painted/operating in American colours).
