Just finished looking through the recently updated September schedule change for US and noticed the following enhancements in the Northeast:

MHT:

CLT: 734, 734, CR9 (was 734, 733, CR7)
LGA: DH8, SF3, SF3, DH8, SF3, SF3, SF3, SF3 (one of those was a BE1)
PHL: CRJ, 734, CRJ, CRJ, E70, 733, CRJ, CRJ (same)
DCA: 734, E70, E70 (was 734, E70, 734)

1 additional LGA flight (as announced) and 11 more seats per weekday compared to July/Aug. Bad news is MHT will be down to 5 mainline flights. 1532 total seats each weekday.

BDL:

CLT: 321, 321, 733, 733, 734 (was 733, 321, 733, 733, 319)
PHL: E70, 757, E70, 734, CRJ, 319, E70, E70 (E70, 757, 319, E70, CRJ, 320, E70, CRJ)
PIT: CRJ, ERJ, CRJ, E70, ERJ (same)
DCA: 319, CRJ, 734, CRJ, 319, E70 (was 319, 734, E70, 319, E70)

1 additional DCA flight (as announced) and 119 more seats per weekday compared to July/Aug. 2357 total seats each weekday plus the PHX flight. 11 mainline flights.

PVD:

CLT: 757, 757, 733, 734, 734 (was 321, 757, CR9, 734, 734)
LGA: SF3, SF3, SF3, SF3, SF3, SF3 (1 was a BE1)
PHL: E70, 320, CRJ, 734, E70, 320, 733, E70 (was E70, 733, CRJ, 319, DH3, 319, E70, E70)
PIT: CRJ, E70, CRJ, CRJ (same)
DCA: 319, CRJ, 734, CRJ, 319, 319 (was 319, 734, CRJ, 319, 319)

1 additional flight to DCA (as announced) and 267 more seats per weekday compared to July/Aug. 2616 total seats each weekday. 2 flights upgraded to mainline - now up to 13 total.

These are nice additions for a month that typically sees lots of cutbacks in the region. Really glad to see US rebounding so nicely...

They'll be in a great position to capitalize on Delta's DOA emergence from Chapter 11 and eventual split up.

Quoting PVD757 (Thread starter):
These are nice additions for a month that typically sees lots of cutbacks in the region.

While most airlines do cut back in New England in Sept/Oct, US isn't traditionally one of them. US reallocates capacity there from the Caribbean, where there is a huge seasonal reduction in flights. LGA also sees a big increase in both frequency and equipment size to markets like MHT/PVD/ALB/ITH/BTV/BWI/SYR/etc as a result of Colgan and Piedmont ending their seasonal MVY/ACK service; these markets are just getting back to where they always are before the summer. Finally, the extra DCA flights were made possible with slots being used seasonally for MVY/ACK, along with the end of DCA-ORD service.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Yes, I realize this, but the extra mainline capacity to CLT and PHL don't come from MVY/ACK service - moreso from Florida and the Caribbean, but not typically as much as they are adding this year. All while most every other carrier continue to drastically slash capacity from these same markets. I'm glad to see US isn't cutting and running in what have been long standing great markets for them.

In addition, US cut 197 seats from PVD from August into September last year, so this is quite the contrast from recent history when US was becomming a smaller airline.

Cause this is a new, improved US. I am glad they are looking back at the roots of both airlines. And I'm sure it will get even better once the E90 arrive.

The former US was just trying to keep their neck above water. This airline is trying to get market share back, while expanding at a more conservative and safer pace. I say kudos to them.

BNA was a route I was surprised they cut to begin with. Good news there for sure...

I recently heard the E90's will be online in November and primarily based out of PHL to start - looking forward to seeing where these will be used.

A few things for SYR that are of note. DCA goes 4x daily, but loses the late afternoon E170 flight in favor of 2 afternoon/evening CRJ departures. CLT stays at 2x daily, but the second flight of the day is a America West Express/Mesa Airlines CRJ-900 in place of the CRJ-200.

Yeah, I hope they are used in PIT as well to help bring back a few routes here and there.

This just in courtesy of a rare Wednesday schedule change by United:

MHT, PVD, and BDL all get 1 more 50 seater to IAD. BDL's in August and PVD/MHT in September. BDL will have 5 flights on a mix of 737/E70/ER4, PVD will have 4X ER4 and a new (resumed really) CRJ and MHT will have 4 ER4 (the 'new' one is also a resumption).

The real surprise is that PVD-ORD goes all mainline in October by upgrading the mid-afternoon departure to a 319 from a CR7. BDL gets a 757 to ORD in September as well. MHT looks to go all mainline to ORD (4X) in September.

While not the 'final' schedule yet, these changes indicate the direction UA is going in the Northeast this fall...

The second PIT-DEN frequency has been cut with the September schedule(the 5:55pm departure). The morning 8:55am frequency remains, along with United's two flights.

Also, US's morning PIT-PHX has been cut, but the flight on America West-metal remains (7:00am departure), plus the evening flight. I'm sure this was just correcting overlapping in the two flight schedules. The HP-operated PIT-LAS is gone as well, but both US 757's remain on the route.

The seasonal PIT-SAN and PIT-SEA have ended as well (though it seems a bit on the early side this year), and one of the E-170 frequencies on PIT-ORD has been cut.

Other than that, outside of some equipment adjustments to Florida, nothing else really stands out.

I think these were clearly on the way since some of those PHX/LAS flights left really close to one another.

United downgraded GSO slightly, with the 2 A319s to ORD this summer becoming 737-500s.

US has 3x CR9, 3x CR7 and 2x CRJ to CLT (down from 4x CR9, 2x CR7 and 2x CRJ). Doesn't look like any changes for PHL/DCA/LGA.
