UA Continuing To Add MSY Service

I have to hand it to UA. They have not given up on the MSY market. United has earned my respect!

As of 2/23/06, their MSY schedule will look something like this:

DEN: 2x 735, 1x 733
ORD: 3x 170
IAD: 1x 319, 1x 733
LAX: 1x 319
SAT: 2x ER4
OKC: 1x ER4

Granted in the post-Katrina world, more of the flights are operated by RJ's, but i'm not complaining. And, since they will be flying to six different cities nonstop, UA wil be leading airline in MSY in that category. Hopefully we'll see the SFO nonstop resume in the not too distant future, but it is good to see the resumption of LAX service, as well as more flights to IAD and DEN, and new service to SAT and OKC.

Keep up the great job UA!

Actually, only the new destinations are RJs. The E70s into ORD are small mainline jets and feature Explus service. The other hub flying is mainline, which is an upgrade as DEN service was Ted for a long time.

I agree, particularly with the reintroduction of the LAX non-stop. Hopefully it will get back to 3x soon. Even with SFO still not running (it was their weakest route to MSY pre-Katrina) they have actually netted 1 extra destination as compares to pre-Katrina

This looks like a smart move by UA...they're trying to capitalize on other airlines' hesitance to re-enter the market (didn't WN announce large schedule cutbacks into MSY?). Great to see some good decisions coming from the ivory palace!

I love my airline, but it ain't no ivory palace!  Wink More like a concrete slum...

FYI DENMSY may very well go back to Ted service late winter/early spring. Heard nothing about the desire to add MSYSFO back unfortunately.

Well, we can't have it all come back so soon I guess. I'm sure it'll be back sooner or later.

That is too bad

They pulled all service at one point, but have now announced so much service is coming back that they will again lead MSY for frequency. They will still be about 50 flights short of pre-Katrina levels.

I wish UA would consider a MSY-SHV or MSY-OKC-SHV. The OKC-SHV could pick up GM biz traffic.
