MKE looses mainline service all together, they will be 100% RJ. I just started working there this week and we become a US Airways mainline express city. PHL is already RJ's and PIT and CLT flight get downgraded to RJ's. Right the flights are being operated by Mesa CRJ's and I beleive some RP ERJ's will also be in the mix, for now.

PIT-MSY has had only ONE nonstop now for a couple of months, flown with 733's and 319's usually. Sad to see only one flight in this market, but US compensated MSY by giving us a 3rd PHL nonstop, so no loss in capacity.

It's hard to imagine PIT-ATL going all Express.

As I envision NW changing to RJ's on the MEM-MSY run in the not-too-distant future, the other MSY route I see switching to RJ's is US's PIT run (what's the mileage on MSY-PIT btw?).

Some of these routes may be operated with Embraer 170's when those start coming online. Remember, USAir/ Piedmont/ Mohawk/ Empire was built on mostly 100-seat and 70ish-seat a/c. Since shortly after 9/11, US Airways has not had any more 100-seat a/c.

Now US has to leap from 50 seats to 125 seats when allotting seat capacity. And this is in the worst national market situation for network carriers ever. Large-medium markets that are some distance from the East Coast, may have trouble filling 2-3 daily 125 and 150-seat a/c to US Airways hubs these days.

US still isn't entering the 100-seat arena; I would think 717's would be ideally suited to US Airways. But that's another story.

PIT-LGA is not going over to US Express, though a mid-morning round-trip is being added; the same is true of the PIT-DCA RJ round-trip. PIT-BGR is a new flight (or an add-back of previously halted service). But PIT-MHT, PIT-ATL, and PIT-MKE are all being downgauged. I don't see how US Airways expects to be competitive with Delta and AirTran to ATL.

Yes looking at my Monday schedule, I am quite shocked to see an ERJ operating BOS-PIT-GSO. Also, expect US Airways ERJ's from DCA to STL and Bangor.
