Southwest To Drop PVD to PHL Flight  
T. F. Green State Airport in Warwick, R.I., service to Philadelphia International Airport will drop to five flights in October, from six now. Southwest aims to trim 39 round-trip flights from its current schedule and reduce its overall growth in capacity this year to 6 percent, from a previously planned 8 percent.

   Chief executive Gary Kelly said the airline seeks fuller, more profitable flights. Itís also cutting its fleet growth next year to 19 net additional Boeing 737s, instead of 34. That would bring its total fleet size to 539 Boeings.
