They have A330-300's already. Do they have additional new ones coming? Do you mean the A350's?

They're down 1 already, it hit a jetway while parking a few weeks ago.

There's also the 37 A320s(60+37=97 total) we're still receiving from the old America West order. I'll try and find out about the delivery schedule. Originally the plan was to have all 96 737s replaced by 2012. They've slowed down removal of the 737s however because the loads are so high on everything. I don't thing Parker wants to give up any market share in the current environment.

here's what I found on their website about the 330's.
http://www.usairways.com/awa/content/aboutus/pressroom/pressreleases.aspx
"Today's announcement also includes 10 A330-200 aircraft with deliveries starting in 2009 and flexibility to convert to A330-300 or longer range A340s.

The new A330-200s share fleet commonality with US Airways' fleet of nine existing A330-300s, but with a longer range and slightly smaller seating capacity. Finally, these deliveries will facilitate the eventual retirement of US Airways' B767 fleet. " ---6/18/2007
