Boston Feels Our US Airways Pain

Up in Boston, people are less than thrilled that Southwest Airlines stopped flying direct to Philadelphia. It’s now cheaper for them to fly to Dublin than to Philly. That’s mainly because the only option left is US Airways. Southwest also recently dropped four daily flights from Philly to Pittsburgh, Manchester, NH, Providence, RI, and one to Jacksonville, FL. US Airways may make it so that Philly misses out on the chowdah and syrup, but—with Virgin America heading to PHL this spring—we’re $280 away from In-N-Out, Hollywood, and the Phils beating the hell out of the Giants.
