Thanks, Metro, USAirways is the largest private for-profit employer in Western Pennsylvania, layoff after layoff they are still by far the largest, the airlines maintence and servicing operations are HQed at PIT (corporate is in Arlington or Alexandria Va.).

Charlotte I heard also has been eyed for the Axe, I think Philly is going to be thier Waterloo with the $$$$ NE Corridor travel linked there and SW's setting up shop right there. USAirways might be flying its last planes soon.

If USAirways is lessening its hub in Pittsburgh because of costs (they also include passenger traffic but Charlotte is about the same on that one much less on cost) The State's gambling bill might make it more economical to fly from PIT:

if the slots bill passes (finally) for the state, $150 million of it (under one proposal) would go to lessen the airports debt. Not bad not bad at all, with the debt out of the way and the competition barrier that USAirways puts up lessened PIT might be looking very good ecomically for an airport already noted as #1 for its efficency and ambiance!
