Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

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.....

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.

I saw that plane sitting at PIT. T-storms along the coast, I imagine.

I never knew about this one. All of the additions to the old terminal, except the first United addition (which matched the architecture), were functional, only. The eventual TWA wing was certainly scaled down from this oval concept. The TWA wing had 7 - 9 gates?

I would think the 787 would be an ideal aircraft for this market. If DL kept the order for that airplane, I could see a year-round flight to CDG flight. Cheaper to fly than a 767. BA started daily LHR-AUS service with a 787 but has since changed to a 777 due to demand.
