This was my first time flying on an US Airways operated flight in a long time. Back in April, I wrote about My Experience Flying Onboard US Airways Since the Recent Merger. The flight from Miami to Charlotte (MIA-CLT) was only one and a half hour long and departed at 2pm in the afternoon.

The flight was on an Airbus A321 and First Class was in a 2-2 configuration with recliner seats.
No pre-departure beverage was served which was a bit disappointing, but it was a short flight after all and PDB’s are a hit and miss.
After cruising altitude, the flight attendant went through the cabin with a snack basket. It was a very short flight, so I wasn’t expecting a hot meal.
I was a bit hungry, so I grabbed three snacks which were a bag of chips, mini pretzels, and mixed nuts. I washed it down with a coke with two limes which was housed in a plastic cup instead of real glassware.
When I tweeted my photo of the new snack basket onboard US Airways, I received a tip from a reader, Eric Harmatz who told me to order the cranberry nut mix which is only available in the coach cabin buy on board cart. I asked the flight attendant about the cranberry nut mix and she gladly went back to the coach galley to grab one for me for free.
The flight attendant purser in First Class was very cheery and upbeat. She greeted everyone in First Class by name and elite status which was pleasant. It’s very rare when a flight attendant even reads the names off the flight manifest and I appreciated that she thanked me for my loyalty. I had my American Airlines Executive Platinum number on the US Airways boarding pass, so I was labeled an Emerald. She said “Thank you for being an Emerald”. This was a spectacular short flight where the flight attendant made all the difference.
