UA Denver service was a good route for the carrier up till the 80s, once US started to build a serious hub and western service. I remember there being three non-stops a day on UA
on that route.
actually started to build a small hub in PIT
with emphasis upon Florida destinations. They spent a lot on promotion. If you sent in a card from the newspaper they'd send you a beach towel. We still have it, and it is near perfect after at least a hundred washings. UA
did things with class. My last UA DEN
flight was in first class. They served prime rib. The flight attendant brought it down the aisle and cut it right there for each passenger.
But with PIT
, remember that a large amount of corporate population is no longer there: US Steel, Bethlehem Steel, Gulf Oil, Alcoa, PPG
, Westinghouse -- all much fewer than before.
