A UAL DC-10 pilot told me that he had a program or something that told him what the routes were for every United flight. Is this kind of information only available to the pilots? Is it even true that pilots could give out the flight routes to non-pilots?

You can get these but the best way to get them is to ask the pilot. I have a couple from a buddy of mine.

These routes were probably generated internally at UAL, and are thus the product of their own flight planning system. Don't know what data format they're in, or if whatever program they're used for is available to the general public.

Most routes are very easy to figure out, in that one either:

1/ Files the pref route in the AFD (airport facilities directory), or

2/ File the shortest route based on distance or winds aloft.

Both scenarios assume that one is using SIDs(DPs) at the takeoff point, and STARs at the landing airport.

If you have some specific city-pairs, I'll see what I can find for you...
