United Airlines has unveiled the latest plan of international network restructure. Here's the following:

-Suspension of daily 777 service between Auckland and Los Angeles; code-share service with Air New Zealand continues; UA serves NZ for 18 years now

-Suspension of daily 763 service between Miami and Rio de Janeiro (date unknown)

-Flights to Sao Paulo extends to Rio de Janeiro as the non-stop flight to GIG drops

-Previous announcement confirmed for takeover ANA/Air Japan's daily Osaka-Honolulu with 777

-San Francisco-Seoul non-stop will be resumed from June 1, 2003, code-share flight with Asiana Airlines, believed to be a 777

The departure of UA's AKL flight mainly due to unprofitable. Flights to Australia remains.

Seems to make sense. I flew Miami to Rio twice last year. Both there and return flights were 1/2 to 3/4 full. I have no idea what the cargo loads were. Seems like having travelers go through Sao Paulo makes sense....keeps the Sao Paulo flights full and hopefully profitable. Star Alliance partner Varig should figure in.

Highlights from today's UA press release:

-Non-stop to Rio de Janeiro will ends on Mar 12 2003. Miami-Rio de Janiero will become Washington DC - Sao Paulo - Rio de Janiero, However, The dep/arr for GIG/GRU sector will be adjusted for quick one-stop connections to Miami and Chicago.

-Non-stop to Seoul from San Francisco relaunch is mostly due to the entry of the newest Star Alliance member Asiana Airlines, flights start on June 2 2003 with 777 (UA807/808)

-Air New Zealand says it'll increase frequencies on AKL-LAX sector after UA's departure. UA will continue to code-share with NZ

"Tag" flights don't work. They dilute the revenue unless you can pick up "locals" on the first stop. I guess you gotta do something...TC
