I don't think so. O&D is about 450 a day in this market or 225 in each direction. You state that the new AA schedule will be 460 seats daily each way. Sounds like enough.
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 8):|
No... that 450 is the one-way number, as per the link I posted.
|Quoting ScottB (Reply 10):|
No, you are wrong. Faremeasure uses DOT's Consumer Air Fare Report Data, and they are currently using 3rd Quarter 2004 data in their database (which is 2 quarters out-of-date since DOT has the 1Q05 data available). You can see the relevant info from DOT's 3Q04 report for PIT-DFW below:
"Table 6" 200403 "23210" "70470" "Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX" "Pittsburgh, PA" 1068.00 445.10 207.71 "AA" 50.23 221.32 "US" 24.98 180.77
DOT's numbers are market total (i.e. both ways) per day. Faremeasure unfortunately does not clearly state this fact.
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 6):|
The point is, there will be less seats on the route than available O&D pax in a day, not even including the connections at DFW on AA. A huge opportunity for someone.
|Quoting MasseyBrown (Reply 13):|
Local reports say PIT-DTW service will also be discontinued at the same time as DFW.
|Quoting A330323X (Reply 2):|
I'm a bit surprised by this, not really because of PIT, but because of DFW. US/HP has specifically named DFW as one of the markets they'd like to maintain a good presence in.

You're right, I shouldn't have assumed you were talking to me. You only directly quoted me.
