Looks like Pennsylvania. The parent carrier is a charter airline by trade.

An observation not yet mentioned...the new BA flight, by itself, will constitute approximately 1% of any overall passenger growth observed at ABIA in 2014.

A jet flight to Houston and a transfer to another flight to Austin would have cost about twice as much. TTA eventually upgraded their fleet to small jets, but they disappeared in mergers years ago.
My first airplane ride was a TTA DC-3 from Dallas Love Field to Brownwood in 1968. I still remember looking out the window and seeing the big red neon Coca Cola sign in front of the bottling plant on the corner of Mockingbird and Lemon.
