Oh my goodness... I'm sitting in the hotel now thinking about this trip and the only thing that comes to mind is that US needs to upgrade this route BADLY. We originally booked next week out of JFK but changed our trip to take advantage of the holiday tomorrow plus the fact that the Pro Bowl is next week -- which might have made things more crowded or more expensive. Either way, the EWR to PHX leg was actually "decent" -- certainly better than sitting in the back. The A320 is an OK plane but the domestic setup will definitely have you wishing you were going on a shorter trip. Kristi was the FA in F and she was absolutely fabulous. Addressed every single passenger by name and seemed to remember it, and although she wasn't always there it seemed she was just trying not to be too intrusive. By comparison, US has an old dog 752 running from PHX to HNL that looks like it's 30 years old and feels even older. I kid you not, if this was a hotel room this is the type you walk out of and go back to the front desk to complain about. Pictures will be up soon.
