The bigger names are starting to drop... just a few more of the many sad PIT fatalities to come.

The down-sizing of US operations at PIT continues.

Does any other carrier fly the PIT-MKE route? Is it something that Midwest or even AirTran would be interested in flying? I have a feeling that we will see further cutbacks at PIT in the near future.

US Cut MSN (Madison, WI) on March 7th, 2003. Just another fatality in the whole thing. Of course, a lot of that cut was to do with low pax loads.

Midwest Connect will be the only carrier on the PIT-MKE route.... which makes me happy, more business for a better airline.  Smile

What happened with cut of these service to MKE? How even to know about them?

IAH and MCI have also been cut, according to Freshlove, who appears to be a US employee. See http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1652306/6/.

The current schedule has 3 nonstops PIT-IAH on 733s and 2 Express and 1 mainline nonstop PIT-MCI.

US cut PIT-LIT last year.

What are going to happen to all of these aircraft?

NW7E7- US is planning to do more point to point flying, primarily out of current focus cities BOS, LGA, and DCA. I've also heard persistent rumors of an increased presence in Florida, especially at FLL. Some a/c will, of course, also go to PHL and CLT in order to add capacity to markets losing service to PIT. EVV-CLT has already been announced, for example, and I suspect that IAH-CLT/PHL could see increased frequency simply by virtue of the size of Houston.

Not doubting that IAH and MCI can/will be cut, but they are still fully bookable well into 2005. Though that can easily change.

They can always just change the flights to UA with the codeshare and send them through ORD. Even though US is not in MSN anymore, you can still technically buy a US ticket anywhere you need to go out of MSN. Its just that you'll fly UA.

STL is also i believe to be cut from PIT in october, US Airways has already repositioned the flights to CLT, which is where the 2 A319 comes into play.

Lfutia- What makes you say that? With direct codeshare service already available from ORD to most of the cities being cut (except Ashland, RDG obviously, and the two in WV), little feed will be lost and Star Alliance connection opportunities still abound at ORD.

STL will undboutedly be cut, probably to be picked up by AA with a couple of RJ's a day. No WN, 150 o/d pax a day with no nonstop service presents a small opportunity for American to continue rebuilding STL. I'm guessing the same will happen with RDU....

I hate to see PIT go, would anyone care to give me some numbers from when the hub was in its prime?

I don't think they will drop RDU-PIT, at least not yet.

Raleigh is more than just a spoke city for US Airways. They fly RDU-AVL, RDU-CHS, RDU-DCA, RDU-DCA, RDU-LGA, and RDU-ORF, in addition to the three hubs.

RDU was supposed to be a mini-hub for US until WN came to RDU. But I have always thought that would have been a terrible idea. They would have been pulling a PHL-PIT again! RDU and CLT are WAY too close for that... I'm glad it did not happen...

The US(S) Pittsburgh just took a another torpedo shot to the starboard side. She's going to sink soon.  Sad
I will be flying into PIT from SFO Thurs. morning; it will be interesting to get the agents perspective.

PIT is the least performing hub in the US system and it is not surprising at all to see them cut so much from there. There is not enough O&D trafffic at PIT to make it a true hub and it is too close to DTW, CLE, CVG, and even ORD and PHL to to compete effectively.

As for the PIT-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA route, although it is heavily subsidized, I believe it will be downgraded to a B767-200.

Ironically, pre-9/11, PIT was the biggest and busiest of the US hubs, with over 500 daily departures. CLT was #2 and PHL a distant third.

And on the other side of the coin, PVD-PIT gains a frequency (which I mentioned in another post), but just found this morning is another addition at PVD a new CRJ DCA flight effective 9/8/04.

On the topic of other airlines replacing the services that PIT is losing:

Any chance that Midwest will change to a mainline flight from Midwest connect for the PIT-MKE route?

It would also really seem like US is dropping some of its defenses against WN (which has expressed interest in PIT) by dropping flights or reducing frequency to airports with a WN presence (STL, IAH, MCI, BWI, etc.). Even though PIT will no longer be a US hub, it will still be a focus city. If WN moves into PIT along with the move into PHL, this will be the last nail the coffin for US (which will happen by next January because that is when I will finally have enough Dividend Miles for a free ticket!)

PVD757, the additional PVD-PIT flight is a seasonal addition. November 5th is the last day it operates. I used to fly that route pretty frequenctly, usually on 734's. It's nice to see the occassional A321 on there now, but you have to wonder how long that's going to last since PIT is being downsized so much. Hopefully PIT-PVD will remain a mainline route down the road.

Now that US has pulled it's PIT flights.. what about he MESA airline.. any word on that? Seems that the gates are opening.. and since US technically only have leases on 10-15 (I think that is the number), is MESA prepared to come in now?
