Re: Indian Aviation Thread - Q3 2020

I was checking flightaware and noticed AF and KL have started regular service to BOM. I knew India created the travel bubble with France but wasn't aware of the same with Netherlands.
AF is using the A332 and KL is using the B772.

Re: Could the PIT hub have been saved?

PIT is surrounded by relatively close hub airports like JFK, EWR, PHL and DTW. Each of those airports is a hub for at least one legacy airline. PIT suffered the same fate as CVG or MEM, being too close to a bigger hub and being dehubbed after consolidation.
