US Airways (Phoenix) as we previously reported, will operate the last regularly scheduled Boeing 767-200 ER revenue flight on February 11.
However the carrier (like it did with the last Boeing 737-400 flight) is now scheduling a special “farewell flight”. Flight US 767 will depart Philadelphia on February 12 at 9:00 am (0900) and arrive at Charlotte at 10:44 am (1044). Flight US 767 will turnaround after special celebrations and depart Charlotte at 12:30 pm and arrive back at Philadelphia at 2:05 pm (1405). This will be the last passenger flight for the Boeing 767 with US Airways.
Piedmont Airlines (1st) took delivery of the first 767-200 ER, specifically 767-201 ER N603P (msn 23897), named “The Pride of Piedmont”, on May 21, 1987. The type entered service on June 15, 1987 on the Charlotte – London (Gatwick) route. The type migrated to USAir (later US Airways) with the merger.
