I would not fly into Charleston.I Hate Yeager Airport
Come on - Yeager Airport 1.13 hours 63 miles
(following the easy route - I can cut at least 10 min off that if 2 lane curvy roads don't bother you)
I fly in and out of Yeager all the time and have to say that I have had more problems at the other airports (including the 2 you mention). I would have no problem recommending it to anyone. Last year they had a big banner welcoming the SummitCorp attendees and I know that some of them arrived there.
You won't find it to have as many flight options as some of the others but don't rule it out. Yeager is not a hub for anyone (but is Pittburgh now? Not USAir anymore.) but is served by USAirways, United, and Delta regional carriers among others. Flight costs are unpredictable and you will sometimes find it is the same cost to fly into Yeager/Charleston as some larger airports.
Having said that - the drive from both Pittsburgh and Charlotte can be extremely beautiful. The last part of the drive from Charleston is too, but you don't get the hours of it that you can from the other two.
