Very interesting, and even surprising as those additional flights weren't supposed to start until June. Nevertheless, it's nice to see that they aren't throwing capacity in a needless fashion. I bet this has something to do with fuel at $75/bbl.

Smart move by US !
With the price of oil going up, let B6 lose the money on this
route. Higher prices will mean higher ticket prices...which will
lead to a decrease in demand. Adding capacity in this current
environment does not make much sense right now. US should
use this aircraft on more profitable possibilties.
3 RJ flights per day is enough for US (remember: B6's E-190s carry
twice as many pax than an ERJ or a CRJ). Plus, there's plenty of
connection possibilities with US at BOS for a flight to/from BUF.
