1) They are flying all their sold tickets from CLE/CVG so there is no rebooking needed.
The thinking I could see on WW's end is: 1) We need to rebook these CLE / CVG flyers in a nearby WW city since their flights have been cancelled. At least the ones who don't ask for a refund. 2) PIT is the more mature market than the other cities and has no ULCC competition. CVG had that 14 hour pre...Jump to post
Something is super awkward about it. I don't know if the orange should have swooped back up over the knocked out white text. I think it probably would have looked better if the blue/orange line remained at the bottom and carried along the belly to the nose. Then maybe "sun" written in oran...Jump to post
Is the Pittsburgh airport building up a flight bubble?
Many new flights to the airport are subsidized with public funds and some are questioning the strategy’s sustainability.
I would really like to see Condor keep up with the heavier marketing they've been doing. I think they got a bit drowned out in the WW hype initially, but I've noticed that a lot of folks in my circles are finally aware of the good product Condor offers, and they're starting to use Condor instead. Ho...Jump to post
The difference is that YUL and MSP now give you the option to book connections at Dublin on the rest of EI's network. If you pick another American city without EI service, you can't book EI connections in DUB. Everyone made the inference that since YUL and MSP now show connections, they're getting ...Jump to post
I don't think this was posted yet, but Brett Snyder of Cranky fame wrote an article about the airport's modernization. https://iconsofinfrastructure.com/pittsburgh-airports-1-1-b-modernization-is-underway/ Not much new to see here, aside from a few comments about airlines in C/D switching gates.

Yikes, that's still a long time to go with such a worn out interior.Jump to post

Seems to be kind of a trend lately with AS -- loading new routes before the official announcement. (It happened last with SAN-GEG a while back.) Whish is kind of nice for A.netters as it allows us to discover things before they're officially announced! Well, no offence to CMH but to me, the fact th...Jump to post

It started earlier this year, if I'm not mistaken. Mainline to EWR and IAD.
The PG editorial "board" is full on trash these days. It's just one person, John Block. Not a board.

Err, you clearly have not flown on VS, the airline DL has invested heavily in. They have had purple for years, well before DL was on the block.
There's another angle here no one is talking about and that is the race to win HQ2. While London and Dublin flights are not a requirement as part of Amazon's RFP, it certainly helps our cause to have LHR and potentially DUB. Amazon has a very large office in London (600,000+ sq ft and 5,000 employe...Jump to post
Feels like an evolution, which is a good thing. I think when they eventually update their livery, it'll be a fresh take on what exists already, which is probably the way to go. I think it's possible for the globe to look good if treated carefully.Jump to post
I notice a lot of posters in other threads seem to be chomping at the bit for Delta to abandon PIT-CDG once BA comes in (which is a bit strange). I really wonder if Delta would do that, though. They've been making inroads slowly in PIT for the last 10 years, with BOS being the latest blood drawn. Se...Jump to post
I wonder, had this been announced and marketed even 6 months early, what would the load factors on the PIT>PVG and PVG>PIT legs be. People might have been able to actually plan a vacation with that much of a heads up. 2 months out for an announcement is not really enough time for a trip of this sca...Jump to post

DL adds CMH-AMS And unfortunately, one of these recent TATL adds also gets dropped for 2019: DL PIT-CDG, BA RDU-LHR, DL MSP-KEF, WW CLE-KEF For those who don't read the Ohio thread and would've missed it, word is that AMS will be the destination for a CMH TATL flight if it happens.

PIT was US largest hub for decades, and still a focus city as recently as 10 years ago. All of those FF we're converted to AA, and many have stuck around. AA still has the most destinations at PIT to this day. DL is gaining steam, but it's still a heavy One World town. I'm not sure about that... it...Jump to post
I too wondered about the joint venture and how much AA has a say in where BA goes next. Also is there a limit to the joint venture and how much AA and BA can share in destinations/flights? I am also guessing that AA can run connections through PIT and BNA and anywhere else? Yes.......id like to kno...Jump to post
Back in the day PIT/LGW was a USair route which, following the BA investment in US, resulted in the route being marketed as BA with US 767's painted in BA colours and crew in BA uniforms. When BA/AA happened this fell apart and US operated for a while. But did BA fly to PIT in their own right prior...Jump to post
