Going after AA as well, with them starting PHX-CLT without a doubt PHX-ORD won't be far behind especially with all the Chicagoans that live here.

Re: Boston skyline height restrictions

Most cities have some sort of height restrictions due to downtown/skylines proximity to airports/flight paths, Phoenix and San Diego are probably the two best examples since neither have any highrise buildings over 500 feet due to height restrictions and proximity to the flight paths.
