    So this is a press release for something that has already happened? They're just announcing the completion of it. So I know I'll have the Envoy Suite no matter when I fly the A330

    It's a press release saying that the Envoy suite retrofit is complete, plus highlighting additional seasonal European routes. From the press release (second paragraph, after the break): "The Envoy Suite is now available on the airline's entire Airbus A330 fleet of 16 aircraft..."

    So yes, if you fly a route that is served by an A330 (either -200 or -300), you are guaranteed the suites.

    I wonder if US has plans to put the suite in the 767...or just replace them as they take delivery of more A330's in the coming years.

    They should move the 767s to Hawaii routes. Those Envoy seats would be acceptable on that pattern.

    I don't think there are plans to do that. I think partially it's an issue of the 767's being retired relatively soon when the A350's roll in, but I also think it's an issue that a 1-2-1 suite configuration can't physically fit in a 767, since it's a decent amount narrower than an A330.
