I must be reading this wrong. They are sending 615 and 616 to the desert, but keeping Christine around! They better give 615 and 616 good parking spaces where they can get out of storage easily, because I can assure you that by keeping Christine around they are going to need them back on the line by the end of the month!

that route per day...or 2, or 3....to service a given route when scheduling a/c?

B757-200 Fleet was 34...now it's 32. What it will drop to ?...is anyones guess? Too many issues play a factor now. BTW...Acft N600AU was NOT the first B757 off the assembly line. That distinction goes to G-BIKA of British Airways. (Mfg S/N) 22172...This was first flown on 25 October 1982. BA actually had the first 20 build positions. N502EA/ N600AU was the second B757 recieved by Eastern.....The first was N501EA...This was later picked up as N557NA by NASA in December of 1994. [---This was the first US registered B757 , beyond that of the project test bed numbers So on all accounts...the information about 600 being the first...or the oldest , are completely wrong. The aircraft was the first of type recieved by USAirways.
