Southwest dropping Pittsburgh to Philly flights

IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) - July 27, 2011

The airline is making the changes to coordinate its schedule with AirTran Airways, which Southwest bought for $3.2 billion in May. AirTran doesn't currently offer flights between the two cities, though it does offer flights to other destinations from Pittsburgh International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport.

Southwest will begin eliminating the Philadelphia flights in November and all four will be discontinued by Jan. 8.
