What equipment is FedEX using, the A300 still? I know some time back someone said FX never ran DC10/MD11s to/from PIT, but I swear when I was 10 years old and would frequent PIT to look at the various planes coming and going that I saw at least one MD11 over at the FX ramps. I know there were 727s o...Jump to post
If I remember correctly this will have either a 2 x 2 or a 3 x 2 configuration with seating of about 100 to 120 pax. I see this as similar to a DC9-30 or -50 but with longer range. I believe the DC9 had a range of about 1,700 miles, while the A220's range is about double that. Good plane for a longe...Jump to post
Welcome to the forum, Planes4you, and thanks for posting. I'm posting in part to let you know that not everyone here is dismissive and belittling. I've often wondered why there's no transatlantic Skyteam service to DFW. I get it. DFW is a megAAhub. But it is also the fourth largest metropolitan are...Jump to post
Maybe the EI PIT-DUB flight was planned, in an effort (combined with BA) to get DL out of the PIT-TATL market. Once IAG saw that DL was going to leave without a fight, the strategy of also adding EI PIT-DUB was moot. Just speculation... That's a pretty fair speculation. Still, it is neat to see thr...Jump to post

I'd love to see Envoy or DL connection pick something up, altho I know the chances of that are slim to none. I'm sure there's not enough traffic that would warrant a premium cabin (CRJ7/9 or E75), and I'm sure they're not going to throw any 50-seaters on any routes like PIT-IND/BDL...

I'd like to see somebody come in and fill in the void once OneJet goes byebye.

Good points, Cush. Sadly, many PG readers will disagree with you. They fail to realize the big picture of just how far reaching the benefits are from these flights. Spend $1 million on PIT-XXX which generates ten times that amount in new revenues resulting in the increase in economic activity from t...Jump to post
Cancelled it without putting up a fight, seems pretty weak to me So British Airways comes to town and DL runs scared.

To the folks who were suggesting LH might upgauge FRA-PHL, what do you see them upgauging to? 779? 748? A350? I wonder which variant of the A340 they currently have on FRA-PHL. All the airline's website says is A340...Jump to post
I'd like to see DL put mainline metal on PIT-BOS as well. I don't see why an A319 wouldn't work on this route or to LGA although an A220 on either route would probably be more ideal... There is already way too much capacity on bos pit. Dl load factor was under 50% in q1. It would be madness to put ...Jump to post

What about TLV? In the past US flew there until merger with AA. If not with AA maybe with LY? AA claim the TLV route was loosing money for like 6 years so that's why they ended it.

Moxy fills the void?
According to Aer Lingus, the airline has stated their list of possible adds for 2019 includes PIT, YUL, and a midwestern city. Not sure if they intend to add CLT. I think there's another thread discussing this. I know it's mentioned on both the PIT thread and the TATL expansion thread if I'm not mis...Jump to post
Somewhat on the subject, but does anyone see AA running 777s on any of their current routes or planned routes possibly? It seems that PHL-longhaul is exclusively run with 763s and A330 equipment. On the subject of route expansion, I too could see eastern Europe added before any focus is given to Asi...Jump to post
flyPIT, Runway28L and PITExpress, you all make good points. Regarding the 773, I too agree that the plane might be too ambitious to use on an unproven market. While I do love seeing it land at PIT, I also think a 787 would have been sufficient (see BA in AUS). After all, wasn't the 787 designed for ...Jump to post
Per today's PG article regarding the Chinese charter flights, the inbound flights from Shanghai are full while the outbound flights are about 30 percent booked.

Somebody in the BA thread suggested Delta might eventually end PIT-CDG as result of this. That would be an interesting and, perhaps favorable, twist.

Somewhat off topic, but I thought AA sent their wide body equipment either across the pond or to South America. Well...

I would say consider banking some of the international flights before doing something drastic like converting domestic gates to international use. If the highly coveted LHR flight and this rumored DUB flight are landed, we may see a banking of international flights.
Exciting times for PIT!!
A three-peat would be sweet, but I doubt it will be likely. It seems that other teams are figuring out a blueprint to match the Penguins skill and speed.
