Hi

When I was a kid I had the thrill of flying USAIR in the 1980s throught the Pittsburgh hub many times. I remember USAIr was a bit special in that it was all coach, (no first) served full meals on flights of over 2 hours, and unlike Eastern, Delta, United, TWA etc who were flying massive jumbos, USAIr pioneered the use of 727s and 737s from the Pittsburgh hub to the west coast. Now that I'm older and wiser I've become curious about that whole operation and was wondering if there is anyone on the know on here that could answer the following questions and or add their 2 cents about USAir in the 80s.

From what I understand this operation at PIT was VERY profitable before US fell into buying PSA and Piedmont. Was curious though:

The 727s, ten of them, used from PIT to SFO and LAX, did they have special fuel tanks added? Or could any 727-200 do that route?

In 1987 on USAIR would rotate 737-300s on the PIT-SFO/LAX ops (equipped w/ video monitors for movies)...would loads fluctuate that they downsized from the 727 to the 737? Was their seasonal equipment rotations maybe 737s in winter and 727s in summer?

Did either type experience fuel stops on the way west?

As the hub grew for US was therre ever any talk of acquiring new 767-200s like PIedmont was and open PIt to LGW or PIT to CDG?

Any info or added thoghts would be cool! Thanks!

Not being a US Airways insider, I would not be able to verify if there was any internal talk of acquiring 767s before the Piedmont merger. However, after the merger, USAir used one of the Piedmont 767s to launch PIT-FRA (1990 I believe). This was the first non-Piedmont USAir trans-Atlantic flight. It was started before USAir had any trans-Atlantic from PHL.

Around the same time, USAir also applied for PIT-LGW/NRT.


During the peak of the USAir hub in the late eighties, PIT had 330 mainline (non-Express) departures. By the time the midfield terminal opened in 1992, PIT had begun it's decline. While often the top US Airways hub for departures in the nineties, those figures include Express departures. If measured by total available seats, CLT, and soon PHL, beat out PIT after the Piedmont merger. The airport soon afterward became a distant 3rd hub when ranked in importance to US Airways.

To make a long story short, the PIT hub's demise can be attributed to:

- Losing connectivity dominance in this part of the region. PIT's eighties strength was before CO in CLE, DL in CVG, and NW in DTW "hub-raided" many of PIT's connecting passengers.

- The failure of US Airways to defend it's PIT hub against CLE and CVG due to late introduction of regional jets.

- A consistent decline in the region's economy, triggered by the decline in manufacturing, and continued by an unfavorable business climate with high corporate taxes, beaurocratic government, poor highways, and continued population loss.

- High facility fees at PIT, relative to other comparable hubs.


I pulled out some old USAir timetables, Here are some random highlights, all with mainline equipment:

Feb 1, 1984 - PIT had service to LAX 3x, and SFO 2x. ALB was served 4x daily. Elmira 3x. Evansville 1x. LEX 3x. JFK/LGA/EWR 26x weekdays. CLE 4x daily.

Nov 1, 1988 - ABQ 2x daily, BWI 7x, Burlington 3x, DAY 4x, IND 5x, JFK/LGA/EWR 20x, LAX 4x, SFO 4x, TOL 3x

May 2, 1990 - ACY 2x, DTW 6x, ERI 5x, LAX 5x, LGA/JFK/EWR 17x, SAT 2x, SEA 3x, SAN 3x, SFO 5x, AVP 4x, Worcester, MA 2x.

Again, those were all mainline.

Can anyone verify the equipment on nonstop PIT-SFO and PIT-LAX in the 1980s? Are we sure those california flights are non-stop, or are they just through flight numbers via stations like MCI? My sense is that the 727-200 could make it on those legs but with severe weight restrictions and with no ability to raise mail/cargo revenue. I guess if there was enough of a high-end business travel market such an operation could have paid for itself, but I am curious to see if/how it operated and what its economics were.

Spring 1991 timetables also show PIT-MAN on the route map, with the note "subject to gov't approval". Needless to say, this service never began.

I believe the ten 727's were just standard, junk-yard 727-200's with no additional fuel tanks. I am a little sketchy on this, but hopefully there are some USAir 727 experts on here. I know when PIEDMONT started flying non-stop 727's to the West Coast from CLT, sometimes a fuel stop was needed in DEN. When that occurred, passengers were all given a $20.00 bill.

Around 1987, the original, ten 727-200's stopped flying to California, for the most part. I don't believe it was seasonal. I think the 737 became the preferred West-Coast airplane, until the 767's and 757's came online. When PIEDMONT was taken over, they started putting the 727's out west again, but more from North Carolina, if I remember correctly. Some of USAir's 737-300's had auxiliary fuel tanks for the non-stop LAX/SFO routes. Those tanks have since been decommissioned.

It seems like a big reason that MCI became a focus city was for fuel stops, but the 737's with auxiliary fuel tanks normally did not have a problem making it from PIT to LAX/SFO/POR.

In the very early 1980's, USAir did discuss serving London from PIT with a 747. It was stronger than a rumor as I saw it in writing in a newsletter.

I believe they were using MCI to route a lot of traffic from PIT to the West Coast as late as 1991. I know my mom flew LAX-MCI-PIT on US that summer.

While I spent most of the 80s and 90s in the South (and thus was a huge Piedmont fan), we did live in Pittsburgh from 1990-1993. Greater Pitt was such a unique airport just before the midfield terminal opened on 10/1/92. It was really amazing how they had tried to make the airport a functioning hub in a deregulated era in a building that, for the most part, was built long before deregulation. Baggage claim carosels here and there in a sort of random fashion... At least one or two gates that had their own security (kind of like MCI today).... Jetways from the lower level of the building where you had to walk up to your aircraft and not, for lack of a better term, down. Just a great hodge podge....

I flew through PIT often before PI established a hub at BWI. It was always bustling but frankly not very attractive overall, except for the art deco main foyer. Still, I always liked it...kind of funky.

Connections sometimes involved some long walks, although US ran some shuttle buses between the East Dock and the Southeast Dock. The gate area where the AL Commuter flights boarded was a madhouse. Usually buses took you to the planes at a remote location. The bus wold stop by several planes and they'd announce which flight it was. I got lots of good close-ups that way.

Now that I'm self-employed I have a client in Pittsburgh and I have to go there every two weeks. Before WN showed up the US walk-up fare BWI-PIT and DCA-PIT was over $900 round trip. Last week on WN I paid $150. It's almost cheaper than driving. Now US's fares have dropped - last time I checked it was around $230 RT, but as far as I'm concerned it's: "Where were you when I needed you?"

Anyway, the hub seemed to do okay in the face of NW (and RC too, for that matter) at DTW and DL at CVG, but adding the CO hub in CLE seems to have been the nail in the coffin for US at PIT. I don't know how much the lack of O&D and Pittsburgh's struggling economy have to do with it...it was a handy place to connect and everyone seemed to be from somewhere else. Now that I think of it, I used to have to connect in PIT on US to get to CLE, before OZ started making that run.

To tell you the truth I liked US better when it was Allegheny. I liked the regional airlines as a whole. At first the changeover to USAir didn't change the airline's service much, at least not to me. The DC-9-30's were comfortable enough. If I was traveling with a small group we would grab the front two rows since they faced each other and there was a table between them.

It was a big deal when they got 727's, and while I can't help you about fuel capacity I can tell you that the red-eye I took out of LAX always made a stop at IND.

The 727s were used by both PI and US for trans-cons until the 737-300LR came online. At US our PIT-LAX/SFO/SEA flights were all 733s with video monitors.

From a service perspective we offered pre-departure juice or wine in COACH! 3 hot meal choices, a movie and even did a pre-arrival service with ice cream sandwiches. On the PI side we offered free champagne (morning flights) and free wine on afternoon departures to the west coast. Both offered hot towel service - in COACH!

Also remember that PI/US had the BWI-LGW flight that we bought from TW. We also did a wet lease program using our metal and our crews to fly BA colors from PIT/BWI-LGW.

I remember that old PIT terminal, and those ramps to walk up to the aircraft and security screenings here and there. I remember the one screening area had mirrors on the ceiling! Looking back on that, I thought that was the sweetest thing!

Now if I may shed some light on the whole demise of the PIT hub, I believe WN had to do with that as well. They entered the BWI market in 1993, and really began to grow a network there in the later part of the decade to places like ALB, PVD, BUF, and the like, which were top regional markets for US travelers connecting in PIT. Instead of flying US via PIT, they could fly for much cheaper through BWI.

9/11 was pretty much the breaking point for US. They had a hub at BWI since the Piedmont merger, which ultimately closed in 2002 (I think), and then PIT came 2 years later as losses amounted while WN capitalized. WN also anounced PHL in 2003 and began service to places like MDW, PVD, MCO and a few other destinations.

I am still hoping for someone else to come on in and fill in the gaps left behind when US cut flights there. A second focus city would be a very welcomed site there.

I do still remember quite well of one of my first plane trips as a child, on a US B727 from PIT to LAX and back on the same aircraft. This was back in the winter of 1985 and I do recall that the flight was non stop to and from PIT and LAX. It was a very long flight too and do remember being served hot meals on both flights, On the PIT - LAX flight I still remember seeing the Rocky Mountains from the air for the very first time which is something I have the pleasure of seeing regulary at the present.  Smile

I am not to sure if those 727s had special fuel tanks or not butt I do believe that they were 200 Advanced series that had the capabilities of doing transcon. I am not to sure if they rotated the 727 with the 737 on the PIT - West coast routes seasonaly, but I was just looking at an old PIT timetable from Dec.1989 and noticed that US operated a combination of 727s and 737-300s to their west coast markets. At that time US had five daily nonstops from PIT - LAX and four to SFO,
and Three to PHX, SAN, SEA, and DEN. In this day of age here in PIT we are now lucky to see any non stop service to these destinations.

Yes and No. MCI was used as a connecting hub for flights that originated in BOS/LGA/DCA. Many of those used 200's or regular 300's. I know they had a 200 do DCA-MCI-SFO. In the early 90's up until 97, they offered LAX/LAS/SFO-CMH/IND/MCI with the 737's, usually 300 but also 400's too when they came online.

These flights slowly disappeared as the 757's came on the property and they downsized the ops at MCI/CMH/IND and BWI.

Thanks for the answers people! Yes the meals were hot and indeed there were 3 choices! I do remember the offer of wine or juice before pushback and Davidlc I do remember the ice cream sandwhiches. They were custom made with the USAIr redish brown logo on them and were delicious. Hot towels I remember as well. Anyone remember if US served those ice cream sandwhiches as the snack only the short haul DC-9 and BAC 1-11 flights out of PIT? Or were they for the longer flights out of PIT only. So many memories. Even though those things are costly by today's standards its the whole homogenious feel the industry has now that it didn't back then. The logos, colors, interiors of the planes, uniforms, etc....was just cool.

With this 330 mainline departure peak in the late 80's, did US have to utilize remote parking for mainline aircaft and bused the pasengers out to the planes in a similar manner that it was done with the express flights? When I was younger i do remember seeing US mainline jets parked with stairs attached just passed the East Dock, visable from the Parkway west.

Also what gates did the AL commuter / US express flights depart out of at the old PIT terminal in the 80s to the very end?

Yes, many of the BAC-1-11 flights and a few DC-9s parked at a remote location and passengers were bused to the main terminal. I always remember the RIC flights ended up arriving or departing from those remote locations. There were usually 5-10 A/C parked at the remote site at any given time, or at least during the early morning and mid to late evening bank.

Sorry I meant PDX (Portland, OR).

As for meals, USAir served a hot breakfast every morning from PIT to PHL. The PA announcement went something like, "We are getting ready to serve you breakfast. Since this flight is so short, if you want breakfast, put your tray table down and when we come to you, tell us what you'd like to drink. If it is not down, we will assume you do not want anything and move on."

Sometimes passengers had to put their Aladdin trays under the seat in front of them for landing because there wasn't enough time to collect them!

Ah the good old Aladdin trays.
