It all starts in 1986 when we got BA’s attention, we were a Steel Town in decline, but they decided to give it a try as a pass though on there DC/Philly flight on the 747, then in 1990 British purchased a partial stake in US Airways, and with US having a major hub here USpicked up the flight for British with a US Airways 767 playing pretend British Airways, then they got tired of each other and broke up, but British didn’t give up, and continued to operate the flight till 1999. US Airways picked it up a year later in 2000, and continued till they turned around, and left Pittsburgh as a hub in 2004. But here we are, and on April 2nd 2019 they’re back! And bringing the 787! Here’s an article with lots of info!
