Hmm...I just found those flights you mentioned in the timetables, yet interestingly enough the flight numbers are all below 2000 (in the 1600's), indicating mainline service. We've all seen the picture that clearly shows Express titles, but will it be considered mainline service?
Does that mean that there will be 2 classes? Also, will they be served from regional concourses (i.e. F in PHL) or the regular mainline concourses (B/C at PHL)?
They will have a dedicated series of "mainline" flight numbers, like Shuttle. This is partly because they will be operated by MidAtlantic Airways, a division
of US Airways, and partly to differentiate them from regular Express flights when marketing them. They will be in a 70-seat one-class Shuttle-type configuration, with extra seat pitch. I'm not sure which terminal the flights will use in PHL
, but I would guess B/C. In PIT
, they will use the mainline B concourse.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
