Currently going through the WN schedule now that the MAX has been pushed back to 1/5/2020. The only noteworthy things I see are:

- MSY's season stops running on 12/15
- DEN goes back up to 2x daily (this will actually up a frequency YoY) on 12/15
- LAX goes up from Sun-only to 1x daily on 12/15

That's reassuring that WN isn't completely giving up on PIT-LAX. It's also noteworthy that WN announced the consolidation of New York City ops to LGA, closing EWR in November.

Apparently, a US-based firm is attempting to re-launch WOW Air (or at least build a (ahem) reasonable facsimile of WW). The relevant quote from this article that jumped out at me:

Looking at Southwest Airlines as a model, she said she aimed to use three A321-200neo, a model the employees of the now-bankrupt carrier are familiar with, and to increase the size of the fleet to ten to twelve aircraft of the same or similar type within twenty-four months.

Destinations would be similar to those of WOW air, she said, with the addition of Washington Dulles, the location of the headquarters of USAerospace Associates.


I wonder if this means we could see the return of PIT-KEF within the next few years...

If the resurrected WW could just concentrate on the northeast and upper midwest of the US with the A321NEO, they should do well. Expand much later after the business is well-established. I would expect PIT is on the shortlist of cities given the performance here. Good idea to add cargo flights too imho.

For those that like maps and layout plans of the airport, I came across this copy. Probably the nicest layout plan of PIT I've seen online:
http://www.iaff1038.org/documents/Fence_Gates.pdf


I know the trains have broke in the past, but has the maintenance tunnel between the trains ever been used for passengers before?

I agree. WW seemed to go off the rails when they added A333s to places such as DFW and SFO that already had excellent nonstop service to Europe. We'll see what happens.

If WW comes to fruition they ought to pick CLE or PIT but not both. For a low fare carrier pax will Make that easy drive. Advertising would help.

FI was serving CLE but canceled the summer service due to financial concerns and the Max 8 grounding. That route used Max 8 aircraft. IF they return to CLE, then WW can use PIT, only.

They haven't updated their December schedule for the MAX yet. It is still the original one.

A part of me is surprised that Delta hasn't taken advantage of WN's MAX problems to at least give PIT-LAX a go, as DL isn't affected by the MAX grounding. I have heard that DL is at capacity gate wise in LAX until they finish the complete refurb of T3 at LAX.

I believe it. Both arriving through T2 and departing through T3 last year it was extremely crowded. When I departed, it was a red-eye to Minneapolis and even at that hour the place was packed and constantly refilling even as flights went out.

I think airlines know the demand for PIT-LAX is there. I suspect that given the fares it commands it's not worth the displacement of another flight on the other end.

Here are the fastest growing airports in terms of seats offered for 2018:

PIT ranked #10 out of the 42 medium sized hubs (p6-7). I love how in the top 10 "Ones To Watch" section that follows they skip #10 and go to #11 :sarcastic:

Airlines sometimes do this. For example, Spirit’s afternoon MYR-LBE flight operates under NK412.

Which is ironic because LBE is in the 724 area code. I like Alaska's previous fight numbers more. The lower the better.

FWIW, NK does that on quite a few of their flights; NK412 is MYR-LBE (yes, I know Latrobe is in the 724 area code), while NK724 is FLL-LBE.

There are some fun flight numbers out there, e.g. flight "500" for Indianapolis - UA 500 is IND-SFO, DL 500 is IND-CDG; "1776" for Philadelphia - UA 1776 is IAH-PHL, AA 1776 is PHL-BOS. I recall more in the past e.g. "1492" for Columbus. "49" for San Francisco, etc.

No they aren’t happening this year. They would’ve been making a big deal about it already if they had been happening. Money probably went towards the terminal improvement program and to BA

I like how AA1776 is used for PHL-BOS. Way to keep it revolutionary! Do they (or anyone else) have a 1773 flight out of BOS?

About tje China charters, I wasn't getting my hopes up anyway that they'd be back. All parties are happy with BA and Condor service. Let's see how long we can keep them around. As has been mentioned, Condor wants to expand services.

Pittsburgh is finally getting an Amazon fulfillment center. It seems like we were the only metro area without one. !,000,000 sq. ft and 800 jobs at the Westport business park just a few miles from PIT. So what does this mean for PIT, as far as the possibility of being added by Prime Air? They are adding more 737s so I think it is a good possibility now, as is the need to think about expanding the cargo facilities at PIT.
https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2019/07/30/allegheny-county-findlay-township-amazon-fulfillment-center/


In other economic news, Pittsburgh looks to gain its 9th Fortune 500 headquarters with the merger of Mylan and Upjohn, which will be combined as a new company spun off from Pfizer. Mylan is currently run from their Pittsburgh location but we lost the F500 HQ designation when they opened an office in the Netherlands a few years ago as part of a tax inversion scheme.
"The new company will be incorporated in Delaware and run operations in Pittsburgh, Shanghai and Hyderabad, India.

The new company will be domiciled in the United States, unlike Mylan, which is domiciled in the Netherlands with its headquarters in Pittsburgh.
"
https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2019/07/29/pfizer-buying-mylan-pharmaceutical-companies/


Also, the region's second cracker plant looks to be moving forward, although no final decision to go forward has been made official. Having said that site prep has begun. This will a $10 billion project near Wheeling, WV, about an hour from 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 G4's website only shows DAB and SFB as nonstop destinations from SJU. I don't know if they just haven't loaded the winter seasonal services yet, or if they're cutting the service altogether (along with CVG-SJU and RDU-SJU).

Excellent article.

I agree, excellent article indeed. I also think that the ACAA et al need to focus on expanding the cargo space. With EFL coming in, Amazon setting up a fulfillment center, and not one but another cracker facility setting up shop not far from PIT, things could get rather interesting within the next several years. The time to move forward with this cargo expansion proposal is now; not in a few years or so from now...

Tail numbers for the last three at March? I know 89-1189 is one of them.

The left side doors on the new hangar appear to have been completed. The right side doors are almost finished.

The company that amazon leases 737Fs from ordered 15 more 737Fs during the Paris air show earlier this summer. I would not be surprised to see a prime plane in Pittsburgh once the new fulfillment center is opened.

June data for British Airways is out.

214 seats per flight > 17 flights each way > 3,638 monthly seats one way > 7,276 total monthly seats (1 flight cancellation during the month of June)
PITTSBURGH 6,313 total 6,313 scheduled

86.8% LF both ways combined.

For only it's third month, that's pretty darn good.

DL3015 A221 IAH-LGA diversion into PIT marks the first look here at the A220-100.


FWIW, I've been seeing the A221 regularly at DFW (mostly on LGA, DTW, SLC) and flew on one a few months ago on DFW-SLC. If/when the 221 comes to PIT on a regular basis (I'd guess DL would use them on DTW-PIT and maybe MSP-PIT - I don't think DL will be basing any 221s out of ATL for the forseeable future) if that were to happen), you'll be in for a treat. As a regular WN flyer and an occasional AA flyer, the DL A221 blows any other narrowbody away. DL's 221s have larger IFE screens and better seats.

That tends to speak volumes that the only time PIT gets to see some interesting planes (BA 788 and QR 777F notwithstanding) on site is when there are diversions or charters.
2019: DAL, MCI, PHX, LAS, DFW, SAT, ORD, SLC, SEA, DTW, PHL, MIA, LAX; B73G (WN x3), B738 (WN, AA, DL), A20N (NK), MD83 (AA), B788 (AA x2), CS1 (DL), B739 (DL), B712 (DL), B752 (AA), B763 (AA), B77W (AA), B789 (AA)

NK is now upping the second PIT-FLL flight from Mon/Fri-only to daily, so the route will now run 2x daily seven days a week for this upcoming winter. PIT-MCO is also picking up a second flight that runs on certain days.

Also, AS is switching SEA-PIT from a B739 to an Airbus effective 11/5/19. Unsure if it’s an A319 or A320.

Looking at the seat map and the configuration, With 33 rows, it might be a 321....

Just looked at the seat map. It appears to actually be an A320. Shows Rows 16 and 17 as overwing exits and 33 rows.

The A21N has 39 rows total.

June data for British Airways is out.

214 seats per flight > 17 flights each way > 3,638 monthly seats one way > 7,276 total monthly seats (1 flight cancellation during the month of June)
PITTSBURGH 6,313 total 6,313 scheduled

86.8% LF both ways combined.

For only it's third month, that's pretty darn good.

And we already know how Condor is doing. Great to see both BA and Condor succeeding on LHR-PIT and FRA-PIT respectively.

This should help NK's issue of overselling tickets, because every single time I've flown on that route it's been either 100% full or oversold. This should allow them to just people on the next instead of having to pay for them to fly on another airline
