If I recall, one limitation of the gate area at T1 was that the 767 was as big as they could cram in there. But I also recall reading something here not long ago that even now there isn't room for a 767 without displacing WN for the time it sits there.
Don't forget that back then, US Airways also offered a daily CLT - LAX flight operated by a B767-200. Ah, the golden days...
