I think its safe to say that PHL usually doesn't make things much BETTER fo US...
Except that PHL brings in a large percentage of USAirway's income. I would say that makes things BETTER for US... John.
People keep arguing that some of the ops should be shifted back to PIT
. I would like to see more US traffic brought back as well, but what's the point in doing so? The passengers supporting such traffic have left; either left the region, or fled to another airport to take advantage of lower fares. If the pax/O&D was at PIT
, then PIT
would still be a hub.
I am sure that PHL
would have been a focus city in this situation, given that they'd likely be the international gateway still, much like what LAX
is to DL
with their transpacific routes. Of course, the transatlantic operations for US at PHL
would be considerably larger...
I do expect to see US add some routes back as the airline becomes more profitable and as PITs O&D increases. PIT
will forever be a focus city for US I believe, but I would like to see routes like DTW
, and MSP
brought back, as well as some of the lost regional routes. Coming back to the topic, I expect to see US drastically improve the baggage situation at PHL
, as well as their ops there. I am happy to see them supremely interested in doing so; PHL
is a massive money maker for US...
