The September schedule for US Airways is showing a buildup at DCA, with several currently Express-only routes receiving mainline frequencies.

Markets which will see the (re-)introduction of mainline service include:

DCA-BUF (all 3x daily will be mainline)
DCA-CMH (1x daily mainline, 4x daily RJ)
DCA-IND (3x daily mainline, 1x daily RJ)
DCA-MHT (1x daily mainline, 2x daily RJ)
DCA-SYR (1x daily mainline, 2x daily RJ, 2x daily prop)

Markets which currently see mainline service include BDA, BDL, BOS, CLT, FLL, LGA, MCO, MSY, NAS, PBI, PHL, PIT, PVD, RSW, TPA.

DCA-MSY will increase to 3x daily with the September schedule.

Markets which will see the EMB-170 from DCA with the September schedule include ALB, BNA, MCI, PHL, PIT, SYR.

On another note, it also appears Charlotte (CLT) will see its first service from the Embraer 170 beginning in September to Buffalo, Houston, Newark, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, and Richmond.

Service will be expanded in Pittsburgh to include Albany, Atlanta, Boston, Columbus, Kansas City, Nashville, Newark, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Philadelphia, Portland, Rochester, Syracuse, and Washington-National.

Good to see that US Airways seems to be expanding mainline out of DCA...

Now if only US Airways could manage to get at least ONE beyond-perimeter slot out of DCA...

Additionally, when is US Airways going to increase their mainline presence out of LGA...the only mainline flights US Airways has out of their largest non-hub are to BOS, CLT, DCA, MSY, PHL (2 a day, with other 7 USX), PIT, and a bunch of Saturday-only flights to beyond-perimeter airports...and I'd love to get a chance to get a ride on the CR7/E70 one of these days...

US Airways in fact also offers some within-perimeter Caribbean flights from LGA. US flies LGA-NAS 8x weekly, LGA-FPO 1x weekly, and LGA-BDA seasonal daily.

And once again Cleveland gets screwed. USAir really doesn't need the 3 gates they have, we should give one up for an airline like Frontier or JetBlue. After all, US only has 1 flight a day that needs a jetway, the rest are RJs or props.

At CMH, US Airways will increase to 10 mainline flights from 6, and to 28 total flights from 25. As mentioned, DCA-CMH will have an RJ upgrade into a mainline flight. CLT-CMH will receive 2 additional mainline flights. PHL-CMH will receive 1 additional mainline flight. Also, PIT-CMH will have a turboprop upgrade into an EMB-170.

Yes. STL also sees a large increase in US service, including EMB-170 service and the return of mainline service, with the September schedule.

CLT-STL becomes 2x 319, 2x CR7, 1x CRJ, 1x ERJ from 1x CR7, 3x CRJ, 1x ERJ.
PHL-STL becomes 2x E70, 2x CRJ from 3x CRJ.
PIT-STL remains at 4x ERJ.

Unfortunately for RDU, it appears that US focused on GSO with the September schedule.

GSO-BOS gained 2 daily RJs, for 4 total. GSO-CLT became all-jet, staying at 8 frequencies. GSO-LGA gained 1 daily RJ, for 6 total. GSO-PHL gained a mainline frequency, for 5 total (3 mainline). GSO-DCA had a RJ upgrade from a prop.

RDU did receive an extra CLT mainline frequency, an extra DCA RJ frequency, and a PIT RJ upgrade from a prop. It however also lost a PHL RJ frequency.

Cool for GSO..

Cool for RDU.. The service at RDU is good.. all I wish is for 3 things...
1. 170 service to LGA and DCA...
2. at least 1 mainline or 2 RJ to IND
3. at least 1 mainline or 3 RJ to TPA

Good news for GSO. All of a sudden BOS-GSO goes from 2 daily RJs to 6 (with DL adding service now). However, for GSO, I did check on November 23 (when I am booked on US from GSO to BOS) that service has gone down to two daily ERJs...one would think that they would maintain this enhanced service for the holiday season...

I thought US was makign big cutbacks at PIT. I see no evidence in their updated schedules. Or are the PIT cutbacks merely a threat at this point. Last I saw, PIT-CLE, PIT-RDU, PIT-GSO service remains through the fall, I thought surely all or some of those routes would be cut or severely downgraded.

I think they are supposed to go into effect in October.. I am assuming at that time, RDU would be all RJ or 170 to PIT.. at that point, I hope US upgrades or adds frequency to some of their focus cities from RDU..

From what's been said, the cutback at PIT won't happen until winter. US is still figuring out where all the PIT capacity will go...they can't simply dump it all on DCA/LGA/BOS/PHL.

The big cutback won't happen until winter. But there are already some cutbacks happening.

Routes being discontinued from PIT this fall include TOL, EVV, BKW, BLF, MEM, RDG, LBE.

Other major cuts include PIT-ERI going from 8x to 4x, and PIT-FWA going from 4x to 1x.

That's just off the top of my head.

RDU-PIT.. 2x733, 1xCR7, 1xDH8
RDU-DCA.. 5xERJ, 1xCRJ, 1xDH8
RDU-LGA.. 6xERJ
RDU-PHL.. 6x733/4
RDU-CLT.. 6x733/4, 1xCR7, 1XERJ
RDU-BOS.. none

But just to show.. RDU currently has combined about..

PHL.. 16 daily flights
LGA.. 18 daily flights
DCA.. 15 daily flights/IAD...21 daily flights/BWI...9 daily flights

Not to bad..

Actually, BKW and BLF are only being suspended until November. The thing that makes no sense, however, is that in between the suspension, US Airways Express will operate CMH-BKW/BLF and IAD-BKW/BLF.

No, they're gone for good. The November schedules aren't right yet.

That the EAS service leaves PIT actually makes some sense, given that PIT may not have a whole lot of connectivity for much longer. And while I agree it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, the BKW/BLF service will indeed move to CMH/IAD. Colgan applied to move the EAS service to CLT, but, for reasons unknown to me, US Airways informed Colgan that they would not be allowed to operate BKW/BLF-CLT as US Airways Express. There were then applications for the service to remain at PIT, to move to IAD, and to move to IAD/CMH. For whatever (probably misguided) reason, the communities preferred the IAD/CMH option, so the DOT gave it to them.

See http://dmses.dot.gov/docimages/pdf89/284384_web.pdf.
