UA is quite weak in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico is US so it can't really be compared to Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago).
When UA got the Pan Am routes, they had POS via CCS from JFK; Other than POS I don't remember any real UA Caribbean destination.

UA's Caribbean network:
Aruba year-round to O'Hare and seasonally to Dulles.
Montego Bay seasonally to O'Hare.
San Juan year-round to O'Hare and Dulles.
St. Maarten seasonally to O'Hare (operated this year for the first time; as of now it is not in res systems for next year).
St. Thomas year-round to Dulles and O'Hare (routed IAD-STT-SJU-IAD and ORD-STT-SJU-ORD).
They also used to fly to Grand Cayman until the hurricanes struck last summer. In the past, they have also flown Miami-Port of Spain and New York/JFK-San Juan, but, overall, they are weak in the region.

Quoting RDUDDJI (Reply 5): I would wager to say UA relys heavily on Star Alliance partner USAir for their caribbean destinations.
.. and everyone else in Star! If and When this HP/US deal goes through, expect UA to do a lot of soul searching, because its friend US, will have become its enemy overnight! Do Not expect US/HP to become a part of Star. If they do it would spell certain death for United Airlines, most definitely on the West Coast!
