very nice.

I wouldn't say very nice. More like above average. Ranks similar to British Airways, Lufthansa and United but significantly below the Swiss A330, Turkish 77W, Cathay, Singapore and the likes

I had a full flat bed in one (w/o bumps and so on), with a sheet, and thick blanket it felt like a bed.

if above average then all us carriers (even the envoy) have to be catastrophic in comparisons.

Are you kidding me???

US Airways "First Class" domestically is awful. I'd be happier with JetBlue!!

hahahahahaha
good one!
 :D

The A340 isn't suites like the A330, but it was the best F I've ever been in.  Between the duvet, down pillow and blanket, great PJ's, great service, etc what else do you really want?

 why is it a joke?

I dont follow US schedule but I do know for a fact that CO,UA,AA,DL ALL at times have their widebodies flying on Domestic routings in order to repostion the aircraft

 So with say CO its very possible to get a 777 with the new BF lie flat bed seats between IAH & EWR. DL flys a 777 between ATL & LAX etc etc

 Thusly w/o knowing USs sched I would think possible if they use a certain type of plane out of more then 1 of its hubs that its very possible to get a wide body on the routing. If they dont fly Intl from LAX or PHX then they probably wont have them. But its very far from being a Joke

I've flown pretty much with US...

My longest flights with them were DFW-CLT-LGA.
As you can see, one of the jokes in the shmooze section is:"US Airways is a good airline", I still find it pretty funny.
