Southwest is here

Southwest Airlines opens for business in Pittsburgh, part of a small but growing industry trend away from hub-and-spoke service.

I rode Southwest up and down the West Coast for years, and the no-frills-with-an-upbeat-attitude approach made it a pleasure to fly. (Out there, it was a worthy successor to the old PSA, which was also a lot of fun -- before USAir bought that carrier, and ran its West Coast service into the ground.) May Southwest's can-do attitude extend throughout the Pittsburgh region.
