Trip Report US/HP LASSFO Flight 575

I was scheduled to take a later US/America West flight, but tried to fly standby on this flight. After being told it would be $25 to change. Since it had been a long day I decided pay the $25 and get on the flight. The Agent was chomping on some gum, but was pleasant enough.



The flight pulled in, but it was clear things were not quite right. Since it was delayed arriving, we should have boarded right away after the arriving passengers deplaned -- but they closed the door. Soon I noticed a discussion in the cockpit with the pilots and the ground staff.

There were no announcements made (Bad!) about the delay or the reason we werent boarding. After about 15 minutes the gate agent came down and starting pre-boarding -- since there were only 40 people on the flight and most of the passengers had been waiting for hours, everyone starting boarding.

The aircraft was a HP 757 (ETOPS) plane -- it had seen MUCH better days a long time ago. I was seated in 5F which is a cool seat since you are right behind First Class with some leg room under the cabin divider.
I think 5A would be best since you dont have a large metal box blocking the room under the divider. In either seat you are ahead of the engines and can get some cool views.

America West/US Airways 757 are configured with only 12 seats in First Class, so there is a mini coach cabin where the rest of First Class should be places.

This plane needed a cabin rehab in a fairly bad way. The bathroom was very "worn" and the TV screens on the bulkhead didnt work at all.

The service was friendly but very brief -- its only a 1.25 hour flight, so you cant expect more than a drink and pretzels.

I like using America West to fly LAS-SFO since the security lines in Vegas can be VERY long for the "D" concourse that United usually flies out of. Las Vegas does have an express lane for security BUT its only for First Class seated customers -- Not for any Elites.

All in all, not a bad flight...but US Airways needs to spend some time, money and TLC on the Aircraft appearance.
