I believe those are code share routes with UAL. How that effects the loads, I don't know, but online there are several more flight options at expedia.

I wonder how US would be doing if they kept the PSA western routes in place
|Quoting UsAirways16bwi (Thread starter):|
I heard they aren't doing to well on these routes due to competition from other airlines. Is this true?

Wow...it didn't dawn on any of those guys that Pittsburgh had the highest loadfactor to all six of those cities, did it?
|Quoting Avek00 (Reply 7):|
It's simply a rumor generated by an analyst's research note that has not been substantiated by anyone.
|Quoting SonOfACaptain (Reply 11):|
Yes, but you also have to take account that most of the PIT flights are on A319's whereas, most of the PHL and CLT flights are on A320's and A321's.
|Quoting Supa7E7 (Reply 10):|
Load factor means little in terms of profitability.
In a route with near-infinite demand, you can fill every plane. But fares are so low that even Southwest probably loses money on cross-country flights which tie up an aircraft and crew for so many hours.

That's just it - HP/US doesn't benefit EITHER system.
