Problem is that there's nobody else even remotely interested in growing point to point flying in the former Industrial Midwest/Great Lakes/Rust Belt for the time being. Moxy will probably target this area once they get off the ground next year. They're not using main airports like LAX/MCO/PHX, so w...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2019

My understanding of the whole PIT-LAX debacle was that the flights on AA and UA weren't timed very well due to available slots at LAX. It's pretty unfortunate for PIT. There is high enough O&D on PIT-LAX that this route should work, but if the flights aren't timed well then not to many passenge...
