I just noticed that United Express flies from Page, Arizona to Phoenix, Arizona!

Do you know of any other oddball (non-hub) routes that United Express has? I know we have discussed United mainline before, but feel free to chime in again, mabe there are some new ones!!

JFK-RDU

...and, I know they're not UA Express, but PHX-TUS and MCO-MIA.

670 - I just looked up the MCO-MIA flight on flytecomm and didn't see anything. Do you know if this flight is still in service?

Yeah, it looks like it's been cut. But I know they used to fly it(to feed to Latin America flights from MIA I think). IIRC, it swapped between the A320 and 737-300.

I think all of the PDX and SEA express flights are a bit odd. UA, though having a decent market share at both airports, does not have a hub at either. The only connections through PDX and SEA are to other UA hubs.

Although this gets brought up in almost every Oddball Route thread, Id have to still say one of the most bizarre is FAT-VIS on an EM2, double daily operated by SkyWest.

CEC - ACV is a tag-on from/to SFO
FAT - VIS and SAN - IPL is a tag from/to LAX

A couple of true non-hub routes:
LAS - PSP
SMF - ACV
SJC - SBA



With a choice between changing one's mind & proving there's no need to do so, most everyone gets busy on the proof.

United Express does not fly JFK-RDU. UA Express (soon not to be) carrier ACA does fly the route, but under Delta Connection.

Actually, the PHX-PGA service is not technically a United Express service. It is operated by Great Lakes Aviation as a codeshare with UA. They used to be a UA Express carrier,but now just a codeshare partner,as with Frontier. The planes are painted with Great Lakes titles and some with different landmarks on the tails.
The routing is Phoenix-Page-Moab,UT-Denver. More EAS service.

LAX-IPL
SAN-IPL

they must make money on these routes, but it still seems odd to me.

(IPL isnt even a towered airport!...just thought Id throw that in.... Laugh out loud)

FAT-LAS is another non-hub flight

At one time Skywest was allowed to do a small percentage of UAX routes on an at-risk basis, meaning UA was not paying for them to operate the flights. If the flight was profitable, then Skywest made money. I don't know if Skywest is still operating these as at-risk.

VIS-FAT is a tag on VIS-FAT-LAX, not weird at all if you consider that many airlines operate flights with 1 or 2 stops before the hub. The flight could be routed VIS-BFL-LAX but Skywest had reasons for wanting to stop at their Fresno base. Many airlines make an intermediate stop to fill an aircraft, look at ELP-ABQ-DEN on F9 which is now ending since ELP-DEN can fill an aircraft. I remember being on a CAK-YNG flight years ago that was a tag of a ORD-CAK-YNG flight, not a stand alone flight
