FedEx had an A300 from IAD over my house last night. Is that normal or was it a diversion? It certianly the first I saw it from the city.

I'm not sure. As far as I know it was a scheduled flight. Flightaware doesn't say it was a diversion.

Last I saw, the gates on the dog legs of the A and B concourses, plus a few adjacent ones, are blocked off. They pretty much just blocked off the ends of those concourses with dry wall.

That's about all that happened. Gates ares till there just not accessible by the public.

I think they were just rumored moves. I think it was rumored that UA and/or FL would move to the A concourse. There really is no reall need for any gate swapping or consolidation or whatever. All the concourses are wide open...

Noone has moved. US consildated ops into B and left A vacant except for WN using 1,3, and 5. CO occassionally will park planes on a gate or 2 in A or if they have diversions or irregular ops they will use some in A. Other then that, no other movements.

Well, regardless, it's terrible. I don't think PIT will ever again handle more than 20 million pax -- Maybe 10-15 million, but that's about all IMO. I seriously hope that things turn around soon for everyone. This economic slowdown got old...

I don't see it hitting 20 million again either. This city would have to really grow for that to happen. Or any airline would have to really grow, and I don't see that happening either. This airport is a waste IMO.

I was wondering if that's how you feel about PIT, because I kinda feel that way myself, but hindsight is 20/20. Travel demand did call for a larger airport at that time. Could you imagine 15-20 million crammed in at the old PIT terminal?  crowded

That certainly could support a MD80 or two IMO. Sure, that would likely mean only 3 daily flights, I am sure, but those birds would be welcome!

Then again, I don't think any flyer would like the "variety" of a 7:00 am, 12:30 pm, or a 6:00 pm etc flight to pick from tho...

Anyway, there was an article in the PG today about hotel occupancy being up in the PIT area by 1.6 percent. The article cited areas around PITT and downtown as being a draw to fill hotel rooms. I wonder what that means in terms of O&D -- are regional folks filling these rooms, or are these people coming from outside the area/state, etc? I would be willing to bet that as of right now, the effects would be minimal, but that's just me... or is it...?

"Greater Pitt" (I never liked that name) handled over 15 million during several of it's final years. I believe about 17 million in its final year, double what we are seeing now.

Quoting USPIT10L (Reply 260):
That's probably right on the money there. Who is this clown the ACAA just hired, anyway? Another "good-ole-boy" who schmoozed up to Allegheny County? When are they going to hire someone who actually cares about aviation and all the promise it can bring, instead of these inexperienced, ignorant, useless clowns?

Quite the good ole boy operation going on at the ACAA. How many employees there have the last name of Flaherty of Forrister? The new clown-in-charge has been with the ACAA for quite some time. That doesn't make him qualified to turn around a failing airport IMHO. I generally like promoting from within, but not someone who doesn't have proven qualifications and track record. In the case of PIT and its precarious position, I would think a responsible gov't agency would search every corner of the globe to find someone with a proven track record of being able take a declining airport and doing what it takes to turn it around. Not the ACAA; one of the first things this clown did was jack up fees 30-60%, only to get spanked by WN and the other carriers.

On another note, with all the talk about how air cargo growth has not happened, and how the landing fees for these carriers are actually higher than the already high fees for passenger carriers, it is no surprise that FedEx has dropped one of their 3 morning arrivals. The extortion of the profitable cargo carriers to help subsidize the debt of a passenger terminal they don't use is not working. Even if FedEx had other reasons, congrats must once again go out to the ACAA for doing what it takes to keep the little business they have  Yeah sure

Then I suppose the old terminal might have been able to handle another 1.75 to 2 million pax, bringing that total to over 20.5 mill, the highest amount of traffic at PIT, which would pretty much make the new PIT terminal unnecessary.

I saw in the Philly Enquirer that US will be cutting more flights. I wonder what, if any flights at PIT will be on the chopping block next...

113 PITops : We still need another way to get around the city. People going from the airport to Monroeville get tired of sitting in traffic everyday. The parkways
114 Tooluther : Not to get to personal, but why live in Monroeville if you don't want to sit in traffic everyday? You like it there, that's great. But why should my t
115 Tooluther : I also realize I'm doing what I always complain about by hijacking an airliners thread into an urban planning forum, so I'll shut up now... Here's an
116 Post contains links PITrules : Here's a slight update to the gas drilling issue. As suspected, it looks like Onorato is out of touch as airport generated revenues must go back into
117 Jsposaune : It's going to be tight. Right now, CO seems to use C52 most of the time, from everything from RON's to the occasional charter. FL will have 2 RON's i
118 PITops : I don't like in Monroeville. I live in Hopewell township north of the airport.
119 PITrules : Diversions today include 3 DL 767-300s from FCO, CDG, and FRA
120 USPIT10L : Nice to get a hub back for a day, anyway!
121 PITops : Where were they all heading?
122 PITops : Looks like an AA MD is there as well. DFW- CMH diversion.
123 N670UW : They were CVG diversions. CVG (and much of Ohio) had some crazy winds today.
124 Willbdsp : So did they process those flights through customs and then reboard later or what happened with them?
125 Post contains links Tooluther : Well here's a huge lie considering my flight from CLT-PIT was diverted to BWI last night when the evacuated the tower due to high winds... http://www.
126 AndyinPIT : Looks like according to flightaware UA1204 diverted to IAD...I wasn't working last night, but I was up in the BVI tower last evening and we got a gus
127 PITops : So the PIT tower was evacuated?
128 Tooluther : That's what we were told. It was a mad house last night when we finally made our way to PIT around 11:30. The airside terminal may have been overbuilt
129 PITops : I bet it was awesome riding on the transit since only one is running.
130 Flaps : I was waiting for a pax on UA 1204. I laughed my behind off when he called from IAD and told me that the pax were informed that they could not land du
131 Tooluther : I was "that guy" who snuck around and got on the wrong side of the train. How long does it take to activate the second train?
132 PIT : Looks like DL is bringin in a 757-200 today (9/16/08). Flight # 9782. Scheduled to be here at 3:38 from JFK. Anybody know who or what it is for? I wil
133 PITops : I always do that too! The second train can't be activated. It is shut off completely. In the morning, they switch sides so that the other can get a b
134 Steeler83 : That is a bit odd. By that type of flight number, I am guessing some kind of charter? How do the Pirates/other MLB teams get to/from their games? Tha
135 PITrules : Delta has also been bringing in a 757 regularly; flt 1794 from ATL.
136 Steeler83 : Is this some kind of glitch?!!! According to Delta's website, there are also a couple of 732s coming from DL! I thought they retired those birds alre
137 NWADC9 : Glad to know the 737-700's are coming, even though I'm sick of 'em (thank you, WN). It saddens me, though, that the MD-90's leaving Is it coming back?
138 N670UW : 73W is the code for winglet-equipped 737-700's. Nice to see something else instead of all the MD-88's and CRJ's from Atlanta. And BTW, yes, all the 7
139 Steeler83 : Ok, that's what I thought. I don't know why their website is saying otherwise. Those birds are/were pretty damned cool tho. I'll miss that roar of th

144 PITrules : Virgin America has started PIT flights, sort of. The first flight came in today from MYR, operated for Direct Air.
145 PITops : They said PIT was on their second tier of flights. But I doubt we'll see that happen.

149 Ktrick45 : Noisy sucker, too. I was trying to get a couple of hours of sleep before work, and was awakened by the shrieking noise of that beast passing overhead
150 NWADC9 : Yep! Had one fly RIGHT over my house, and I thought it was one of them meddeling C-130's, then I saw this beast. Watched this one come in last night
