Is it me, or is US Airways starting to put itself together? I’ve blogged previously about my positive experiences with the airline over the past several months, and today, things got even better. First, US Airways announced that it will begin nonstop service from my home airport, Washington National (DCA) to San Diego, California (SAN) in June. And then I learned the news I’ve really been waiting for, US Airways will finally move forward with inflight wi-fi across most of its mainline (A319/A320/A321) fleet AND Embraer 170/175/190 fleet. That’s awesome!
US Airways currently offers wi-fi on its A321 fleet. With the latest announcement, US will add wi-fi capabilities to its other Airbus narrow body aircraft and add GoGoVision capabilities which will offer customers access to movies, TV shows, games and other great content. This is good news for US Airways customers. I only wish the timeline for rollout to the mainline fleet was a little more aggressive than a fall 2012 start with completion in 2013. Guess I’ll take what I can get.
These are very positive moves by US Airways, and go a long way in making up for its paltry inflight entertainment offerings on domestic flights.
