I can only imagine. It was sad back in 2006 before I retired - going into PIT and seeing only a handful of mainline planes but A bustling with Express flights.

1 hour and 7 minutes should be plenty of time to connect.
It should take all of maybe 6-8 minutes, 4 if she hustles.

Interesting thread here! It's unfortunate that PIT sold its soul to US, but things change over time. Just ask BNA, RDU, DAY (a whole concourse is closed), RNO (remember Reno Air), DEN (built a whole concourse to CO's specs and CO didn't show up), DFW (lost Delta and its "Easy Street"), ATL (suffered during the 90's with the loss of EA), MCI (one failed hub after another since the 70's), TPA (once NW's minihub), SEA (once a NW and a UA minihub), PDX (DL's Asian minihub), CMH (once an HP minihub) and the list goes on and on. Most of these airports have recovered well.

Generally, airlines have discovered the importance of scale of hub airports and the importance of significant O&D traffic. STL and PIT are vitually in the same boat!

Next up? Cincy and Delwest. Memphis, hold on!!
.....and don't forget RDU and BNA (AA) !!

There have been several rumors floating around here on FT and among US agents that new PIT-GSO/RIC flights were in the cards. Does anyone know if these are still planned or got shelved?

A restored PIT-GSO route would be nice. On a somewhat related note, I consider myself lucky that the RDU-PIT route has survived while so many others have lost service from their home city to PIT.

US Airways' January 2011 traffic is up 8.6% over last year. Maybe there's hope, or at least the bleeding has stopped.

PITTSBURGH, PA (March 9, 2010) – Passenger traffic is up 8.7 percent with ten airlines reporting increases at Pittsburgh International Airport (www.FlyPittsburgh.com) in January 2011 compared to January 2010 according to the January 2011 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report, prepared by the Allegheny County Airport Authority.

A total of 592,810 scheduled passengers were enplaned and deplaned at the airport in January 2011, an 8.7 percent increase compared to January 2010 (592,810 in January 2011/545,243 in January 2010; 8.7 percent increase). It was the busiest January at the airport since 2008 when 644,957 passengers traveled at the airport.

JetBlue, with service to New York (JFK) and Boston from Pittsburgh, showed the largest percentage-based growth for the month reporting a 43.3 percent increase in passengers (19,232/13,417; 43.3 percent). JetBlue increased flights to Boston from one to three since 2010.

Other airlines to show increases are US Airways (159,872/147,207; 8.6 percent), Southwest (116,172/104,079; 11.6 percent); Delta (90,870/84,437; 7.6 percent); United (58,049/50,941; 14.0 percent); American (39,257/30,495; 28.7 percent); Continental (37,204/34,928; 6.5 percent); Skywest (4,345/4,220; 3.0 percent); Air Canada (3,103/2,247; 38.1 percent); Myrtle Beach Direct Air (268/189; 41.8 percent). AirTran, which has grown to the fourth largest airline in terms of passengers at the airport, reported an 11.7 percent decrease in traffic (59,820/67,779; 11.7 percent). Frontier, which previously operated as Midwest, reported a 38.2 decline in traffic (3,279/5,304; 38.2 percent).

“This is the tenth consecutive month traffic has increased at Pittsburgh International Airport,” said Bradley D. Penrod, Executive Director and CEO of the Allegheny County Airport Authority. “Our fares continue to be lower than the national average and we have more airline choices for travelers.”
