AirTran To Begin PIT-FLL

Tue Aug 24, 2004 1:12 am

While looking through the schedules, I noticed AirTran begins Saturday-only nonstop service between PIT and FLL effective Nov. 20.

With recent additions, AirTran has nearly doubled the size of its operation at PIT. In addition to the new FLL service, AirTran will add fifth and sixth daily flights to ATL effective Oct. 5. They will also add a second daily flight to MCO effective Nov. 4. All flights will be on 717-200 aircraft.

Any info on any of the non-US carriers increasing frequency at PIT? I'd really like to see AirTran make a comeback here.

Good news. Always nice to see expansion.

Just goes to show, FLL is currently the airline industry's "it" airport.

Thus far...

- AirTran has increased service as mentioned in the thread-starter.
- Northwest began twice daily flights to MEM last Monday (Aug. 16). Both flights on CRJ's.
- Midwest is adding a third flight to MKE effective Sept. 8. The new flight will be operated by Skyway on the FRJ.
- United is starting twice daily service to DEN effective Oct. 4. Both flights on 737-300's.

Looks like as US winds down, FL and carriers like it ramp up.

Good for FL, good for PIT. Bad for US.

Yeah, US gets rid of 150 flights, other airlines add 9. Sounds great for PIT.  Insane

And I fail to see how pulling down unprofitable flying and redeploying the aircraft in more profitable markets is bad for US.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

In addition to the above mentioned new flights, Independence Air also began PIT service a few days ago, with 8 flights.
