UA JFK-LHR, Only 1 Flight?

United used to operate three daily flights from JFK to Heathrow. One was a daylight flight (UA 976) and two in the evening, a 7:00pm and a 9:00pm. I now see only one flight, the UA 956, departing at 6:50 and on a 777. Does or did UA make money on the NYC-London runs? I flew them several times in the 1990's and the flights were nearly always empty. Upgrading to Business was never a problem. Flights used to be all 767's except for the EWR flight, which was and still is a 777. I know that the war, the temporary flight reduction, and SARS and UA's Chapter 11 are creating the need to cut flights, but does UA plan on flying this route assuming it survives? Does it make money?

The second daily flight 904/979, is planned to be back in May, but who knows whether it will come back. UA recently stopped flying JFK-SEA, after 20 years on this route.

I flew United LHR-JFK-LHR 3 years ago and the flight was packed, but this was summer time and loads are heavy in the summer period. Needless to say, UA competes on JFK-LHR route against BA,AA,VS,KU and AI without really having a strong presence at JFK.

Add that to all the EWR-LHR flights!
Who needs the A380 indeed!

Then you have the other London airport...
