If you're not a premium frequent flyer with any airline, flying coach will always be the same as riding a Greyhound, not the best experience.

Flying any 757 to Europe in coach is about as close as one can get to flying cattle class. The Airbus 330 is a little larger and more comfortable than the 757, but like every other airline in the world, flying coach class on US Airways is simply a way to get from one place to another, sans comfort. You get what you pay for, but if you consider the price of a ticket today, it's still pretty much of a bargain.

Flying Envoy on US Airways, or Business Class on Iberia, can comfortable and relaxing, especially on US Airways' new Airbus 330 Envoy/Business class configuration, with its nearly 180º lay-flat seats. They could have done a better job, the seats are a little narrow, but not bad.

The one good thing we find about flying US Airways, over other carriers, is that we normally receive an automatic upgrade on domestic flights, and are notified several days in advance.

Sticking with one carrier does have its advantages, especially when flying internationally, free use of the US Aways international lounge on the way out and access to the club when returning home. It makes for an easier experience when you do fly coach.
