14.01%

That is the percentage of passengers flying out of PIT on a USAirways (or whatever its current corporate vernacular is?) flight. Yes, less than 1 in 7, or virtually the inverse of a decade ago if you want to think about the speed of disruptive change. I think the .01% is a bit gratuitous, but let's hear it for precision metrics. For more detail here is the most recent data distributed by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics on passenger traffic departing the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport.(btw: I leave the link for this up on the right if you ever want the latest update)

I'm wondering if "Other" includes the US Air Affiliates like Air Wisconsin that do a lot of the short haul flights.

The airport's own stats implies some of that: http://flypittsburgh.com/PIT_Passenger_Traffic_Report_For_2012

but then if consistent the other affiliates (United Express?) are also caught up in other. I doubt the best version gets USAirways over 1/4 no matter... but maybe a bit over with consolidation with AA stats.

Maybe, but who cares? Honestly. "Everyone" said the lack of a hub would mean the final nail in Pittsburgh's economic collapse. I mean everyone. Ironic then that Pittsburgh's economic renaissance happened while the hub was disappearing (and taking what 12,000(?) jobs with it). Not saying it is cause and effect or even correlation. I would frankly still prefer the hub. But I still wager O/D traffic is UP since the end of the hub, the high prices of which likely depressed marginal local traffic.

Yep, the airport as it stands is clearly sufficient for the purposes of supporting (as opposed to leading) general economic growth in the region. The plan should be to continue to work through the debt and gradually cut fees, with perhaps a few VERY focused efforts to temporarily subsidize new routes, plus some VERY basic cosmetic and maintenance expenditures. And of course land development in the area as the market demands it.

Basically nothing terribly exciting, but that is all the region actually needs.
