Please, Southwest, come to my airport

Please, please Pittsburgh officials are flying to Dallas today to beg, er, we mean ask, Southwest to increase its flights at their very empty airport. US Airways has declared Pittsburgh an ‘un-hub’ and cut back service at the Steel City dramatically. The carrier, which had once made Pittsburgh one of its major hubs, has cut service there progressively from 500 a day just seven years ago to about 70 now. Meanwhile, Dallas-based Southwest came in in May, 2005, growing from 10 daily flights to more than 20 now. So, we wonder, who else might be begging Southwest for more service?

 

Well there’s Las Vegas, and then there’s every else that the majors are pulling out of. But consider Southwest’s growth patterns and you’ll see that the carrier is very, very careful about where it goes, and in particular now that its focus is on business routes. And there’s very little business in Pittsburgh just now.
