US Airways intends to fit its new-delivery Airbus narrowbodies with Gogo's in-flight high-speed Internet system, and to use the aircraft to replace legacy Boeing 737s.

The carrier has offered Gogo on its 51-strong A321 fleet for about a year-and-a-half.

In a message to employees, US Airways said it has taken delivery of three of 12 A321 aircraft scheduled for delivery this year, and expects to take delivery of the remaining nine A321s in the fourth quarter. An additional 12 A320 family aircraft will be delivered to the carrier in 2012.

"These 24 aircraft will be used to replace legacy Boeing 737 aircraft. The new aircraft will feature more first class seats than the aircraft being replaced and will be equipped with Gogo in-flight Internet," revealed US Airways.
