US Airways from London

Hi all,

I apologise for posting this here, but I am guessing the city and this airline (US Airways) are intrinsically linked so I am hoping one of you guys can assist.

We have been booked on a flight from LHR to PHL on route to Boise, ID and I have heard odd rumbles that the economy seating has been improved, specifically the leg room, which was terrible last time I flew them back in 2009. Can anyone confirm this at all. I am specifically referring to the A330-300.

I have posted in the seatguru forum and had very little luck, it seems a very closely guarded secret (either that or my surfing skills are that poor).

Thanks in advance

I would be very surprised if legroom has increased. Airlines have reduced the number of flights and need to get as many passengers as possible on each flight.

There was -minimal- improvement on the A330s that were reconfigured for the new Envoy class. As a result economy picked up about .5 inches of pitch in most rows.

Not something most will notice.
