US To Resume MIA-PHX And MIA-PIT

Thu Oct 26, 2006 5:32 pm

Not very surprisingly, US/HP's suspenion of MIA-PHX did not last long, and neither did the Miami-Pittsburgh suspension. Daily service on Miami-Phoenix and Miami-Pittsburgh resumes 3 January 2007:

US 1163 PHX 1600-2159 MIA 319 Daily
US 1163 MIA 0715-1010 PHX 319 Daily

US 1695 PIT 0845-1133 MIA 733 Daily
US 1698 MIA 1225-1504 PIT 733 Daily

Nice to see US Airways reverse on their plan to end both routes.

I have a feeling the suspension had more to do with aircraft allocation issues than anything else. Also, FLL-PHX goes 2x daily again this winter.

With a 0715 departure apparently, US doesn't want any of the cruise ship action from MIA to PHX, so apparently PHX people will continue to have to switch planes somewhere.

FLL has an afternoon departure to Phoenix good for cruise pax. The morning departure out west is more important for business travelers, and I think US rather have those than cruise ship travelers.

I heard that several months ago, didn't believe then and still don't with all the service the AA has cancelled in PHX (JFK, LAX, SJC, STL just a few). Would like them to reinstated the red eye (0215) flight to DFW so none can make some points in the Caribbean in one day.

It was supposed to start. However, at the last minute, AA decided to go for a 7th daily MIA-LAX with the 757 allocated to the route.

They couldn't beef up anything. They don't have enough RJs to add a second daily, and they can't resume mainline service to Pittsburgh for the near future.

Anyway, I wonder what equip that flight to MIA will be, an A319? Or will this be an Embraer? (I actually think this will be an A319 and not a regional provider.)

Funny... This cut didn't even last one full year... I sure hope the loads/yields are more encouraging this go around...

PIT MIA will only be a 733 until the 190s come online. Look for most of PIT Florida to become 190s in the next year or so.

PIT-Flordia becoming E90s doesn't make very much sense. PIT-FLL is 1 B734, and 1 A321? Why would they have those aircraft on the routes if they aren't needed?

PIT-FL sees quite a few daily passengers! I don't think you are 100% correct. I agree they might have an E90 here, and an E90 there, but taking over on all frequencies is a bit strange. PIT has low O&D, but not that low!

I flew that route in May and loved it. The best a/c for the route is the 733. They can't spare one, so I think the 734 is overkill and an A319 is just right.

The O&D is coming up, and I think that re bring-back of this service has to say something about PIT's O&D, especially in the FLA market...

I don't know if I said this before, but I hope that this route does well and that it is not dropped by US again...

The main markets that will go to 190s in Florida will be cities like PBI, RSW, MIA. TPA (with a Airbus or Boeing once a day) and maybe we will see JAX come back once a day. Currently all those markets, other than TPA see once a day service in the morning. It would be nice to see it increase in frequency.

MCO and FLL will probably still see larger A/C with a few E-jets adding frequency.

JFK was I'll grant - that failed on it's own merits, whatever those were.

SJC and LAX were back in the day when UA had REAL service to LAX and SFO. From what I understand, UA had the market to markets west of both cities, as well as a substantial group of business FF's. AA has these to points east of PHX, but I think the techies to SJC were used to HP/WN. Weren't these routes ex-Reno Air anyways?

STL doesn't count either - that was cut just like all of the other Ex-TWA flights when AA descaled the STL hub - hardly a "PHX failure"

I still bet AA will take a run at a PHX-MIA flight, since US and WN haven't put much into that service. They certainly carry enough capacity here this winter (6 to ORD, 10 to DFW - 9 of these are 757s) - 2600 seats a day is doing pretty good for a non-hub airline at PHX.

PIT-LAS needs a third daily flight, not a reduction in service. Those B757s are ALWAYS full. I think you are just saying some of this stuff?

Just because an A/C is full doesn't mean it's making money. In fact US is cutting LAS frequencies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays soon. The AM flight to LAS will be cut on these days.
About one third of the people on the PIT-LAS are connections. If they continue to cut the number of connections going through PIT an A320 twice a day would handle the local pax easily.

Over the next few years US will be slapping ETOPs on every 757 that they can. You will slowly see domestic 757 service in US paint drop off. That is one of the main reasons that there was an order for more 321s. About the only place you will see none Hawaii, Europe or Caribbean 757 service will be to LAS and MCO out of CLT and PHL. These markets require less first class seats and with LAS a bit more power to get out on hot days.

They still won't run PIT-LGW with those extra ETOPS 757s if they do that? Aren't they supposed to get 10 A330s in 5 years to use on more PHL routes? I guess the international O&D isn't coming up enough for that just yet. I guess they could use them to start new PHL-UK or add more frequencies on existing UK routes. Then when they get more widebody aircraft, and when PIT's transatlantic O&D gets high enough, perhaps one of those ETOPS 757s would be used to re-initiate PIT-LGW service...

The extra lift MIA-LAX was sorely needed, but AA could have accomplished that with equipment upgrades and used the 757 to start MIA-PHX.

The new 0800 departure MIA-LAX 777 is doing great operationally. Lots of room for Y to J upgrades and a very exclusive upgrade free F cabin. This must be better use of the A/C then sending MIA-DFW as a F/Y flight (using the J seats as Y).

I agree with this. I wonder if any E90s would be for additional service or to replace existing service (733/4, A319s) with an E90 or two if this were to happen (I mean replace one or two 737/A319s with one or two E90s; not replace one 737/A319 with two E90s as this would be silly)

If US starts at 0600 and sends a 190 to PHL from PIT every hour until 2100 that adds up to 15 flights a day. With about 100 seats per flight there are 1500 seats going each way daily.

Currently there are about 11 flights a day with a mixture or Airbuses and 737s and also a a few 170s and CRJs mixed in. If you add those seats up its around 1200 each way.

In the end I am sure that it will not just be 190s going between PIT and PHL. With the major maintenance base in PIT and the need to get A/C between the two systems there will be a few mainline A/C mixed in.

Back on the subject of MIA/US, there is a rumour that the FLL-EYW and FLL-CUN (Saturday-only) service will be moved to MIA in March, conciding with the new terminal opening.

Who all will use this new terminal besides US?

Avianca, United, Swiss, Lufthansa, Air France, Alitalia, Delta, Continental, El Al, Aeropostal, Varig, LAN Argentina, LAN Chile, LAN Ecuador, LAN Peru, and a dozen or so others.
a.

Wow, that is at least 15 carriers!!! With US in addition to that list, that makes 5 Star airlines at that terminal; I am sure that there are more Star carriers, right? Does AC or South African fly there? (not that I am solely interested in Star Alliance airlines or anything...)

How are they too large if they fill them? A lot of people fly between PIT and PHL. Southwest has seven 737's on the route.

Hey buddy, I know every aircraft that US flies to and from PIT, so thanks! By the way, US doesn't fill ALL of the flights!

Right, some of the flights may be 80% full, and I am sure that at least one, particularly during an off-peak period, is only 50 or 60% full; same with WN. I was on a WN plane coming from PHL that only had like 40 people on it. Then again, that was Jan 1st, not a big travel day, and it was in the middle of the afternoon...
