Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

Not an obscure correlation. Competition on EWR/JFK to CDG. Zero at PIT. Take that EWR 757 and make PIT-CDG year-round. AUS as an example of a mid-size area getting daily service to LHR, initially made possible by a 787. When BA launched AUS that was their first TATL service....they still only have ...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

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.

Possibly makes PIT the origin of the flight instead of EWR. Just speculating. Maybe a few days per week in the off months.

Curious, is PIT seeing any regular 757 passenger service these days on routes? Currently there aren't any pax 757s scheduled into here. Sometimes DL will send one in from ATL in the summer. But from what I've seen lately on Delta's website, PIT-ATL will be MD-88s, MD-90s, and B739s this summer. Doe...

I saw today that the airport was using 28R and 32 for arrivals this afternoon while 28L was being used for departures.
