Posted 2010-09-01 17:01:47 and read 10263 times.

UA used to have pretty big presence at SEA. In fact I used to be able to fly UA throughout the Pacific NW without having to switch over to AS. Over the last 10 years that has slowly become more and more difficult. Terminal N is now more AS than it is UA.
I would love to see the new merger give UA a boost in SEA. I still prefer them over AS, mostly because of their larger national network, Star Alliance, and more diversified fleet (that and channel 9!!).

Any thoughts on UA going back to "mini hub" status in beautiful Seattle?

IMO, no. I don't think it would go that far anymore. UA has already downsized the station and AS it taking over N, like you said earlier. I think the new UA lost out on this opportunity to expand. Methinks that the new UA will be on the B concourse.

Yeah better call DL if you want to set up nonstop trips to the pacific out of SEA nowadays. And who would have thought DL would have a presence in SEA say 10 years ago?

DL still isn't that large at SEA, IIRC it only around 30 flights a day. MCO/BOS/LAX are larger DL citys. (2x the size)

At this point i would say no. If UA adds anything back out west it will be IMO via DEN or SFO.

UA/CO will not turn SEA or any city for that matter into a focus city. Neither airline really has any focus cities in the same manner that AA and DL do. Both UA & CO run point to hub operations, with hardly any point to point flying (which would be required for a focus city). I don't think that strategy will change post merger.

Sorry, don't see United making much of SEA, and matter of fact see it shrinking as Skywest exits markets in PNW flying as its Brasilia get parked.
I'm also really waiting for the next shoe to drop with small'ish UA SEA crew base get closed as part of the merger integration.

DL, like UA in recent years have downsized the SEA station too. Before the merger ever came about, DL destroyed their old hangar as they had no use for it and NW then built theirs in that spot. Now NW and DL merged... with that new hangar, the irony is existent. And DL has been serving SEA for decades, BTW.

There was talk about moving them to A and use A1-A6 or A7, IIRC. But that never came about. Before the old A concourse was demolished and rebuilt, WN used A1 for flights alongside with the current B gates they still use today.

for SEA Delta is larger to Asia than UA.
1x daily NRT 777 on UA vs Daily NRT(333) KIX(763) and 5w PEK (763) on Delta.

UA has a bunch of crew bases like SEA that I think they'll keep around because it reduces crew cost expenses in terms of layovers. JFK, BOS, and LAS also come to mind.

Not talking about MX work, I'm talking about destinations served. DL also got the SEA Hawaii flights with the NW merger. Pre merger DL, they only really flew SEA-ATL/CVG/JFK/SLC and before that DFW/PDX. Since the NW merger, DL's presence at SEA has only increased. Having said that, many stations throughout the DL network are like SEA in that they increased their ops not because DL was bigger before the merger, but because NW already had their ops. in place for the combination of the two. SEA is one of those large former NW stations. Ditto IND, MKE, LAS etc.

IIRC also back in 1999-2000 UA flew SEA-LHR.

1) I wouldn't expect SEA-NRT to be cut....but it may be shifted to ANA.
2) I would pretty much bet LAX-SEA stays, it is a key market from LA and it would have more carriers on it if it wasn't for codesharing.
3) DL putting the 777 on SEA-NRT over the 333 would be a cut in seats.   (but it is a Boeing...so i could see how people would want it over the 330 :p )

I may be the one guy that says it may indeed increase. By departures, Seattle is the largest (or 2nd largest) non hub in the UA/CO system - even bigger if you include all of Star. I think LAX will see (some) mainline return when CRJ-700s get deployed to Houston and Newark. While I don't see a dramatic increase in Seattle - all of Star flying, I could see some growth and possibly a few new cities.

I also think that United will get back more of the North Satellite as there really is no gate and counter space together to put them anywhere else but North.

I'm pretty sure AS taking over N is a done deal. As for counter space, I'm pretty sure there's still plenty of space by CO's counter, especially if they redo them and make those counters nice looking, but not as interesting as the counters for AS.

SEA-LAX went to CR7 since there is so much competition with the fare war between Virgin and Alaska. UA was the odd man out when yields plummeted and kept the service with regional jets rather than cut it. The demand is there for SEA-LAX and I believe it has the highest load factor out of SEA on UA.

SEA-NRT has been around for a while and while having lower loads than other flights to NRT, its also has less competition. SEA-NRT has two airlines compared to LAX-NRT with 6.

Slightly OT, I am New York based. Our base isn't going anywhere. Now with the merge with Continental, we expect that we will be a three airport base. But even without the merger, it is difficult at best to run an operation without a crew base in NY. The layover options and prices alone are cost prohibitive. Crews coming into JFK have to layover as it is the end of the road. It is difficult finding one room for teh occaional out of base extra we get. They could never find a reasonable solution for a whole bunch of crews.

Back more on topic... I wish we would build up SEA more. It is true that we lost so much flying. I had a layover there a few months back and I was shocked on how much we have shrunk on our terminal.

NYC base for UA makes sense especially for the PS flights. UA has trimmed down SEA quite a bit but it has held up better then say EWR and MIA which bases were completely shut down last decade (although for EWR it doesn't matter because it will be coming back.)

Overall, I don't see UA expanding SEA post merger but I think the crew base will remain. Ditto BOS and LAS as well. I highly doubt UA will drop the NRT or ANC flights either.

I too recall UA's SEA heyday...arriving at Sea-Tac Airport in the 80s and 90s by car one typically drove right past the N terminal with its multiple DC-10s, 767s, 772s and the occasional 747. I always appreciated the huge tulips on the vert stabs as opposed to those on the 727s, 737s and 320s. UA was one of my top choices for flying out of SEA for it was easy to book a widebody as long as I wasn't flying down the west coast. Nowadays the best UA has at SEA is the 752, aside from the NRT 772.

Hopefully the merger will mean growth at SEA, but I have my doubts for CO historically has not been a big player there.

So, essentially, the only non-hub cities SEA serves is GEG, PDX, and ANC (maybe throw in NRT). Let's face it, these locations are served from SEA do to SEA's geographic location. I do not think it is a reflection of UA/CO's intent to develop SEA into a focus city. If they intended to turn SEA into a focus city, I would expect flights to JFK, maybe BOS, mainline to LAX, and maybe some more intra-west flights.

In addition, I do not believe the new UA/CO will have a lot of point to point flying (thus creating a focus city). The new airline will already have hubs in a lot of the top markets.

Furthermore, point to point flights are not as frequent on UA/CO as they are on DL or AA (and AA has been reducing point to point flying a lot recently).

Even with this it will only give the new UA about 36 mainline daily flights a day out of SEA. That will be AS #1, WN #2, UA/DL really colse to each other at 30-36 daily.

Peak destinations? Hard question to answer. They used to fly to DFW, CLE, JFK, EWR, OAK, SMF, SAN, HKG, HNL, LHR, more and more, that's just mainline not counting express.

Yep, for years actually. As I recall, it was 74L tag to HKG. Then down-gauged to D10. Then 757. Then 320/319. Then cancelled.

Never recall it being a D10, it went 74L to 762 to 757 to 320/319, not to split hairs.

IIRC also back in 1999-2000 UA flew SEA-LHR.

1991-1993 only. They used a 763.

It started as a 74L, then was a 763.

That was when you'd see UA flights arrive in SEA and hold for a gate. Not anymore from what I can tell.

Also Shuttle By United at this time made up for alot of these flight. N14, N15, N16 used the shuttle.

Could have sworn I saw it on the route map in Hemispheres magazine in 2000...

Gotcha. The 3/27/11 date was rather misleading.
