US Airways considers replacing B757s with A321neos: reports

US Airways is reportedly taking a "preliminary look" at the A321neo as a possible replacement for its long-haul B757 aircraft. CEO Doug Parker stated "We are in preliminary talks with Airbus about what the aircraft can and cannot do." US Airways CFO Derek Kerr recently mentioned the carrier wants to work with Airbus in developing a way to configure the A321 to give it the power and range that would more closely align it with the B757.
