I know US covers the market well, but I think there is some connection opportunity to some Western stations not flown by US. I know UA used to fly 2x 733s..will the restart the service..maybe with Express?

Quoting USAirALB (Thread starter):

UA has a codeshare on the US flights, so UA really has no reason to start it with their own metal.

When did what end?

Right now US has 4 daily to DEN and one that is X-Saturday.

And those are codeshared for connections to places like BZN.

UA has a domestic aircraft shortage right now due to the 737 retirement...so marginal routes such as CLT, where they can codeshare with a partner and still bring in some revenue, are low on the priority list for their remaining aircraft. In fact, I think you would see them launch SFO-CLT with their own metal, due to high-yield Wells Fargo business traffic and easier Asia connections, before DEN-CLT would return.

He's referring to CLTDEN on UA metal. IIRC it ended in 2007, just before the 733/735 mass retirement.

The current US CLT-SFO schedule already connects well to UA Transpacific services so if UA were to add a flight just to connect it would be on top of a US flight. USFlyerMSP was right, UA has a shortage of mainline equipment so there not going to start a transcon flight when one technically already exists.

US has CLT covered pretty well to DEN, LAX and SFO and UA has no need to start CLT service to any of their western hubs.

No, it was after that. Toward the end, the flight numbers were 43 (early departure, around 0800) and 659 (late afternoon departure, around 1700). 43 ended in mid-summer 2008, and the afternoon flight, which was retimed a couple of times and renumbered as 423 toward the end, ended in November, 2008.
