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.....Jump to post

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.

A conspiracy theory question that maybe someone can shine a light on- I grew up under the approach for 28L, my parents still live there. I have friends who also lived under that approach.

So, some updates regarding OneJet at PIT, and it's a mixed bag. ⋅ PBI appears to be getting the chop, making it the fifth(!) destination to be terminated in the past six months. June 22nd is the last flight that can be booked through their website, even though Google Flights shows it as J...Jump to post

On another note, I just flew today a Swiss C Series from BUD to ZHR. 2-2 First class configuration and 2-3 in coach. From a flyer’s perspective, this is a very comfortable aircraft.

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?Jump to post
Southern Airways Express says an interline agreement will be in place by the end of May with AA, DE, and BA (at BWI).

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 ...Jump to post
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.Jump to post
BA parent might by DY? How might this affect potential PIT service?
Don't know if this would make a year-round PIT-CDG flight possible.

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...Jump to post
