Haha. This appears every month or two. What, did Onorato (Allegheny County/PIT) piss them off or something that now they're talking to MEM instead?? Don't bet on this ever happening.

We've been hearing about a start-up in PIT for ages. I doubt it'll ever happen.

Isn't the lady that wants to start Victory from MEM? Some initial backers were probably MEM people she worked with.

There's a reason NW runs mostly RJs through MEM. There's not enough O&D to validate a larger hub presence, let alone a new carrier.
