Why not assuming the plane can get there. PIT-STL is what, about 500 miles? I've been on many UA 757's that fly SFO-SNA, 372 miles, at 41,000. Since they're so light (little fuel), they can get there and that's where they're cheapest to operate. -- -- Larry Stone --- firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.interserve.com/~lstone/ Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
