Re: OAG Changes 3/8/2020:AA Drops PHX-PIT/TPA,CHAPHL,DFWOAK Adds ORDHNL;DL Drops KIXSEA;UA Drops IAHCAK,FLLSFO,IAHYEG,MS

PIT/TPA-PHX underperform compared to average from PHX, and CMH/ATL-PHX do as well, hence the reason they are dropping the latter routes to once daily during the MAX grounding. PIT doesn't underperform per say so much as it just suffers from being well connected via other hubs. The route routinely s...

Earlier this month we flew BTV-PHL and landed on 17.
