I'd say, in general, higher fares are due to fewer airlines (America West, ATA, Northwest, Continental, Airtran, Midwest, Skybus, others all have gone bye-bye in the US since 2003) and higher fuel prices, which pretty much go together. Fewer airlines at PIT is largely a result of fewer airlines out there period.

You don't think overall population numbers have anything to do with the age distribution of the labor force? Pittsburgh is getting younger, not older.

I read this article and several others about Pittsburgh's aging workforce and the problems associated with this issue. You should really read up on this issue further, it would help with your understanding of the Pittsburgh labor force.

Getting your 21-year old into a PGH school is a good strategy. Employers are oriented towards hiring local graduates. Pittsburgh is crazy good at retaining college graduates.
