US Airways Adds 3 More MKE Flights

Mon Oct 18, 2004 3:51 am

MKE will have 9 flights total on US like they did before PIT service was dropped back in september.

While searching for flights on AOL travel here's what I came across: MKE-PHL will have 5 flights instead of 3. Four of the flights are on crj's and 1 is on the erj-170.
US will also fly 4 flights between MKE-CLT instead of 3. The great news is the new flight to CLT is on a 737-300. We finnaly have a little US mainline service again! I'm not sure but I think these 3 new flights are going to start on Feb. 7th.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Avoid the Chicago ORDeal!! Fly MKE!

GOOD NEWS!!! GOOD NEWS!!!

Seems RDU is in for a bunch of changes on US starting 07Feb05.

An additional RJ to LGA all RJ (total of 7)..
Downgrade of 2 flights to CLT to RJ (total of 8)...
Change of flights to PIT to 3 Dash-8 and a J41 (total of 4)...
An additional flight to PHL (total of 9)
Complete change for DCA to 3 mainline from none, an E170 from none, and 3 RJ (total of 7)...

Don't know if any new destinations are/were added, but these are some cool upgrades..

PIT is getting SERIOUSLY demoted...
Aiming High and going far..

Up here at BDL, we get some interesting changes:
CLT- 7 flights (up from 5), 4 of which are on 757s
DCA- our Saturday only E170 flight is now daily
PIT- 5 flights (up from 4), but are now all ERJ
Looks like Allegheny is ending Dash 8 service, all BUF, ROC and SYR service is B1900 or Saab 340 from Colgan.
PHL, FLL, and MCO stay the same.

I'm not surprised by that. I flew CLT-RDU on Tuesday and there couldn't have been more than 60 or 70 people on the 733.
I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

CLT-RDU isn't usually packed.. I'd say about 60%..

RDU-CLT is usually about 80-ish% to overcapacity.. it's not uncommon for US to ask for volunteers at RDU..

these must be the A/C being pulled from PIT that they are adding.. seems pretty sweet!
