AA looks to be putting some of their E190s aside, and PIT is one of the locations they're sending them to. N954UW was ferried from LGA to PIT earlier today as flight AA9625. All future flights for the aircraft are cancelled per FlightRadar24.
A couple of other E190s flew from PHL to ROW today as well.
The BTS/Transtats website released domestic passenger numbers for December 2019, giving us the entire year's worth of data. Top ten destinations from PIT in 2019 and total passenger numbers: ⋅ ATL, 473,185 ⋅ ORD, 334,916 ⋅ CLT, 296,138 ⋅ MCO, 260,908 ⋅&nb...Jump to post

I just don't understand it. There are three flights (2x AA, 1x WN) between PIT and PHX throughout March and April. One AA flight gets dropped in early May, then both remaining flights are gone in June. No non-stop service for all of July and August.Jump to post
What about LH? Why can't they operate at PIT they operate daily year round on an A330, A340, & A350 out of CLT a city smaller than PIT with less business that have direct ties to Germany, and a city with much less competition Charlotte is bigger than Pittsburgh. As of 2018, the Charlotte metro ...Jump to post
This week's OAG thread shows a slight increase for NK on MYR-PIT. Amazingly, AA JFK-PIT is going >1x daily in Apr. I did some further searching on Google flights, it'll be 3x daily on Mar 29th, then going 2x daily from Mar 30th through to Apr 24th. Pretty good for a route that was cut for practical...Jump to post
What's driving the Jan domestic growth +3%? I would guess the excellent weather helps that. Last year was a fairly rough winter. This year winter forgot to show up. If there is a snowflake within 100 miles of LGA, JFK, EWR and to a lesser extent BOS, MDW, and ORD...many regional flights are cancele...Jump to post

UA updated their June schedule earlier today. Both SFO flights are getting upgraded to 739s and DEN is being increased back up to 3x daily flights. Seems like the UA increase on DEN-PIT could be due to the WN cut on the same route, or vice-versa. Speaking of cuts, AA decreasing PHX-PIT to 1x daily ...Jump to post
Contour Airlines is starting service IND-PIT https://businessfacilities.com/2020/02/contour-airlines-to-add-airline-base-at-indianapolis-international-airport/ Interesting to read that Contour is resuming IND-PIT but under their own brand instead of OneJet.

Gains and losses for 2019: 01/04: F9 drops MCO and SAN, despite consistent load factors above 90% for the latter 01/07: B6 drops FLL (still served by NK and WN) 01/11: WW drops PIT, before ceasing all operations a couple of months later 03/01: 9X drops AVP 04/02: BA starts LHR 04/11: VC starts BHM, ...Jump to post
New year, new thread. Going to go over my 2019 predictions and see how close I was before I get to my 2020 predictions. My predictions for 2019: AA drops JFK and RDU completely, with DL commencing service to the latter DL also adds BDL to replace the service lost after J1's collapse WN adds MCI afte...Jump to post

AA700 SFO-PHL and AA1781 DEN-PHL were holding east of PIT and are now diverting away to the north west. Might be heading to CLE?
NK202 DFW-BWI looks to be diverting to PIT.
I had a look at Google Flights to see if there'd been any changes. I saw that AA has once again extended mainline service on the PIT-LGA and PIT-DCA routes, with E190 flights operating up until 11/1 and 11/2 respectively. I did a search for PIT-SJU and... nothing. Google doesn't have anything, and G...Jump to post
I pulled up the scheduled service table from September 2018. Here are all the American flights that were on it, and how September 2019 compares in parentheses.

AA's mainline service to LGA and DCA was recently extended through to Oct 2nd, so all of September is now covered. LGA-PIT has one flight with an E190, while DCA-PIT has two. Neither airport had any mainline service at all during 2018. That's definitely a capacity boost.Jump to post
-With a 94% LF on F9, look for them to drop that route for next year. :lol: Right! Being serious, I think F9 should up this route too. On another note, lack of flights to PBI is one of the more frequent complaints I've seen lately from Pittsburgh travelers online. PIT-PBI just can't get a break. WN...Jump to post
I had a look through the Via Air thread and read about the many flight cancellations. It's really not looking good for the airline. I decided to see if any of the flights out of PIT were still scheduled on their website. BHM is apparently still running and BDL is still supposed to start on July 22. ...Jump to post
Just a side note, the previous yearly population estimates for Pittsburgh get adjusted each time they bring out a new estimate (why they do this, I have no idea). With the exception of 2011, each year since the 2010 census has had an upward revision in the 2017 estimates: 2012 estimate: 306,211 - 20...Jump to post

Boutique Air has been tentatively awarded the EAS contract at MSS after the shenanigans with SkyWest. However, they will only fly to BOS, with no service to BWI or PIT.
In other EAS-related news, the contracts for HGR and LNS expire at the end of the month and they still haven't been renewed yet.
Looks like Skywest scuttled their plans for EAS service at MSS. Perhaps this opens the door again for Boutique Air? IIRC they proposed two routes, one of which was PIT-MSS. Yup, Boutique proposed three different options out of MSS: BOS by itself, BOS and BWI, and BOS and PIT. PIT would have receive...Jump to post
Really strong winds in the region today. I went to see some of the landings today, and had to battle the wind gusts just to stay on my feet.
UA3535 EWR-CLE (E175) was diverted to PIT, and UA4293 IAH-PIT (ERJ-145) aborted its first landing attempt, but succeeded second time around.
