I was looking through www.united.com, and saw that United Express/SkyWest will commence two nonstop flights between Boise and Los Angeles. They will apparently fly the 50 pax CRJ.
With these two new flights, United will offer 4 mainline flights (1 ORD, 3 DEN, and 10 UA Express flights.
Last week I heard someone ( a UA employee) mention LA flights, so I started looking it up.
Here is the preliminary schedule according to their site.
UA6538 lv 10:56AM ar 11:55am
UA6539 lv 7:29pm ar 8:28pm
UA6536 lv 8:05am ar 11:04am
UA6537 lv 3:59pm ar 6:58pm
These,along with Horizon Air's two flights, will for the first time, BOI will have two carriers offering nonstop LAX flights.
Here is QX's schedule as of May 5th.
lv 6:10am ar 7:40am
lv 6:50pm ar 8:20pm
lv 8:10am ar 11:30am
lv 8:40pm ar 11:59pm
So this will give the choice of deHavilland DASH 8-400s or CRJs on nonstop flights.

Looks as if AS' 1 nonstop will be it.
I guess everyone is happy funneling pax thru SEA or PDX.
I was amazed to see sometime ago that UA ended their nonstops to SFO.
Is there not that much traffic at GEG? I would think there would be, but by flights, maybe not.
The Q400 is actually the nicer airplane, though United is the larger carrier. Looks like UA is finally trying to get a piece of what QX has been exploiting for a while, underserved small markets to LAX.

So when is United Express going to go head to take more of NW's market in the upper midwest and plains. UA used to serve places like CWA with 6 flights a day. Now its down to 3 or something. NW on the otherhand is at 14 total arrivals and departures to MSP and DTW. UA could do small midwest station to SFO and make a nice little bit of cash.
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

Quoting B757capt (Reply 5): I'm surprised that UA didn't do this already. hmmmm interesting.
They did, but 25 years ago.
Quoting NWDC10 (Reply 8): I would love to see a non-stop GEG-YVR. Robert NWDC10
Probably not enough o & d on this route. Unless you had ACJazz w/ a dh8-300. But even that would be too big.
I remember when GEG was little more than a tech stop on Frontier's DEN-GEG-YVR routes, and Hughes Airwest to YYC, and UA's old DEN-GEG-YYC routings.
