From down the river. The powers that be in Cincinnati are negotiating with Delta to try and save some international flights from their that are slated to be eliminated. Sounds like they are backed into a corner to do what was done here which is to have some local organization guarantee a certain amount of revenues or seats sold in order for Delta to keep the flight. Maybe Pittsburgh was on the cutting edge of a new paradigm in the airline industry. What if every region winds up being asked to pony up to support local flights like that. Just a thought experiment to think what the logical conclusion is there.
