USAirways and the 'so what' question

What is really fascinating is that a potential new major reorganization at USAirways just barely makes it into the news cycle here any longer.  Maybe that makes sense given the number of flights left here, but I bet there would be ramifications no matter. It is also a real change from the past when, as with US Steel before it, every little machination at USAirways would make news all around here.  As for the future???  Charlotte is still one of the top destinations of passengers departing PIT and I have to believe that a lot of that is related to the USAirways hub they have retained for now. 

Via my Pittsburgh Airport Data link on the right is this data on flights at PIT by carrier:

I'm worried that once US Airways closes everything down at PIT, then that will act like a drag on job numbers for a year, and then everybody will use that one down year to talk about how the party's over, and how all the positive economic momentum since 2007 has been nothing but a mirage.
