From ATWOnline (26 Apr 01):
***US Airways, feeling the heat from Southwest Airlines, is reducing the number of daily flights to half-a-dozen cities served by its low-fare MetroJet operation out of Baltimore Washington International Airport and ending service altogether to a seventh, an airline spokesperson confirmed to ATWOnline. "This has been in the computer since March," he said. "This is not a large number of cuts." He added that the decision was based solely on the economics of operating this number of flights. Daily frequencies from BWI to Tampa will be cut from six to five, Manchester from five to four, Providence from seven to six, West Palm Beach from two to one, Chicago Midway from four to three and Jacksonville from three to two. Service to Cleveland will be eliminated.***
Didn't BigAir learn from the examples of United Shuttle and Continental Lite?
