The decrease in flights to and from Pittsburgh is frustrating

What’s happening to Pittsburgh International Airport? It appears there has been a decrease in the number of flights to the airport. Anyone who often travels to the city over the past 10 years could surely identify with this problem.

For instance, from the West Coast, there are a very limited number of flights that are nonstop to Pittsburgh. I find this frustrating, especially given the recent economic boom with the natural gas industry.

My hometown is Pittsburgh, and I often fly back at least three to four times a year with my fiance. My mother also comes to visit me in San Francisco about two to three times per year. I would expect the flights to be more frequent than once a day with United, at horrendous times as well.

Also, I find the limited number of airlines that serve the airport dissatisfactory as well. JetBlue, for instance, used to fly through Pittsburgh to New York and no longer does.

With a city that is looking to move forward with evolving times, shouldn’t more flights through our “international” airport be available?
