Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

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...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

I meant to add this after the EI new routes announcement. An article on WESA quoted Christina, and I paraphrase here, that the ACAA was not interested in additional TATL carriers at this time. They want to get BA up and running, and successful.

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

Ms. Cassotis' job is to entice airlines to either expand existing service or start new service from PIT.

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. ...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

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.
