Will B6 Start Service To PIT And PHL

Thu Apr 07, 2005 1:40 am

I would like to start a discussion about B6 starting service to PIT and/ or PHL. A co-worker of mine is interested in flying PIT-LAS. In my opinion, I think this would be a good move for B6 to compete with WN & US on this route. I am interested in traveling on B6 from OAK-PHL, via JFK or n/s.
Any information pertaining to the any speculation or issues related as to why they don't do this yet would be appreciated. Big grin

PIT-LAS would come long, long after BOS-LAS, which doesn't exist yet either. In other words, no, PIT-LAS is not a good idea, especially without WN's hub in LAS.

PHL-OAK is a decent idea... but B6 will try to strengthen BOS, IAD and JFK instead for the near future.

As busy a market as LAS is, it's about saturated from Pitt. Between USAirways, Southwest, and America West nonstops, I think the traveler has plenty of options. If B6 decided to fly to pitt they'd be going to JFK.

Supa7e7: BOS-LAS on B6 starts 5/3/05.

To answer the question asked in the title of the thread: Probably not until/if US dissapears as it is today or they pull down PIT even more/or scale back PHL which is highly unlikely.
