How does UA's PIT traffic compare to RDU? A cursory glance at routes, frequencies, and aircraft size seems that they're similar, and UA is building a lounge out down there. I wonder if we could potentially see one here.

Columbus also has the power to annex most of it's suburbs, which it has done. Pittsburgh is stuck with it's early 1900s boundaries, due to state laws. We've done pretty well for ourselves considering that.
