We can't question the profitability of these routes. Sure I'd love it if the Logan-PHL service was a shuttle every hour at half past but realize that at least a few times a month we were getting cancelled, likely due to the low passenger counts. I had a couple of gate agents actually validate that in PHL though at Logan they'd just smirk. Regardless, SW still kicks the snot out of USAir between Logan and Phila and would everyone stop griping already about getting into Logan. It's called the big dig and we all owe the rest of the nation a big thank you for subsidizing all the beautiful new tunnels that make getting under the harbor a breeze as long as you don't try to get in from the west say anytime between 630am and 10am or try to leave between 230pm and 8pm :)
I too love the PIT-PHL flights but just last week I got to the PHL airport and the 640am was once again CANCELLED and I missed my 10am meeting in downtown PIT so regrettably it's time to pony up the big bucks for USFare.
Good luck everyone!
