So DE has updated FRA-MSY for 2019 and it will be returning at 2x weekly. Yet FRA-PIT is still showing 2x weekly starting 6/28/19. I think it's safe to say that will be the frequency we'll be stuck with for next summer. A bit of a shame, but I can definitely see why. DL increasing capacity, being d...Jump to post

Try again. The subsidy money is coming from the city’s tax on local gaming revenues. This money was intended to supplement or replace taxpayer revenue. The actual source of the BA subsidy is the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) LOL, this is what I love about a.net. Do y...Jump to post
Ms. Cassotis' job is to entice airlines to either expand existing service or start new service from PIT. I think She has done a hell of a job in doing this, the axing of CDG and blowing funds on two PVG flights notwithstanding. Who is to say she/ACAA can't offer subsidies to other airlines who do n...Jump to post
Now there's an incentive for BA to make LHR daily. Also to note that DL is discontinuing EWR-CDG. Would be interesting to see if a lot of the DL PIT-CDG traffic connects to London airports. Probably not going to happen for right now. There are other markets where the daily service will likely happe...Jump to post
AS announced ending SFO-IND service at the end of September.

This probably isn't the greatest place to ask this IMO but it's purely out of curiosity. If Pittsburgh were to somehow land the HQ2, where could it potentially be located? I would think Cranberry since that's were a lot of major development has occurred in the last few years. But with the Southern ...Jump to post
Regarding the other threads hoping for an end to PIT-CDG.......they are probably envious of what PIT has accomplished. Might see this p-to-p service as a threat to their favorite hubs. The interesting statement to remember from Christine is that a lot of London traffic drives to IAD to take the non-...Jump to post
Just did a quick look to see how the DL flight to CDG is looking close to the end of the season. The outbound on Monday, August 13 has 18 first class seats available (the lay flat seats) and 119 in the main cabin available. A return on Monday, August 20 has 0 first class available and 66 available i...Jump to post
Here's PIT's flickr page with MU and passengers featured at the beginning. A lot of happy passengers after a 14-hour flight. Trying to figure out why they are on buses and are outside with the aircraft parked at a Jetway. Anyone there today?
In addition to MU, multiple diversions are en route or have landed including an AS B738, several UA B738s and B739s, a DL B739, a WN B73G, an AA A321, several DL E175s and probably a few others. Is it my imagination or are we seeing an increase in diversions because of summer weather on the east co...Jump to post
Did a check to see how advanced bookings are going for the AS flight PIT-SEA. Both ways are on a 737-900 with 16 First Class and 159 Economy seats. The Sep. 17 PIT-SEA flight has10 First Class seats sold and 86 sold in Economy. The Sep 25 SEA-Pit flight has 11 First Class seats taken and 71 reserved...Jump to post
PIT-LAX is 1,856NM which is well with in the range of the A220. It would be a long flight in a little plane and I don’t think that would be a good selling point to the customer. Not when Southwest is flying 737s to LAX and Spirit flies A320s to LAX. United flies a mixture of A320s and 737s to SFO. ...Jump to post
According to Christine, fliers to LHR or other airports in the UK are not captured amongst the local traffic as many DRIVE to IAD for the non-stop flights. This adds to the PIT potential.
Also, checked the BA website. Found RT trip regular economy for $357 in May 2019.

Since the ACAA has met with the airlines for some time regarding the project, I don't understand the 'heavy-handed' comment. DEN is spending nearly as much for a refurbishing and adding some gates. BNA is spending $1.2 billion to redo their airport (BTW, they have four runways). The two are not cor...Jump to post

The 757 from Basel.......interesting Greek jet charter company.
Is the financing in place for the project? I haven’t been able to figure that out. Have there been any concerns that steel tariffs will drive construction costs way up? Looks like Gensler and HDR for the airport with Luis Vidal on lead design. Reaaaaaally happy about the Luis Vidal part. MAD is a s...Jump to post
Took a look at the J1 website to see what's going on. It appears PIT only has IND and BDL flights. Most of their other destinations have been suspended. The only other remaining airports in their whole system are ALB and BUF. They must have reverted to mostly charter ops. About that loan.....Jump to post

Looking at the playback, several other flights bound for the DC area were also diverted to PIT this afternoon, as well as a few from BWI, EWR and JFK.

WN announced new or expanded service staring in November. Nothing for PIT.
