ALL US Airways Airbus A330 will get a face lift !

US Airways (US) is still on track to outfit its entire Airbus A330 fleet with its Envoy Class, which features a reverse herringbone seating configuration, by this summer. It was the launch customer for the Sicma Aero seat in September 2007. It has 14 of its 16 A330s outfitted.

Though the carrier has Gogo Wi-Fi on its Airbus A321—with plans expand to its Airbus A319, A320 and Embraer E-190, E-170 and E-175 aircraft—US Manager-Interiors Engineering Gregg Fesenmyer said the carrier so far does not have plans to add the connectivity service to its A330 aircraft.


We’re evaluating that,” Fesenmyer told ATW at the MRO Americas Conference in Dallas. “We just installed, as part of the upgrade, Panasonic’s ex2 IFE system on the aircraft. We’re still evaluating satellite coverage … at this time.”
