Hi all. After looking through airchive.com, I ran across a route map from 1994 for United Airlines. Does anyone have any timetable/schedule info for the airline for 1994? I haven't seen a 1994 UA schedule available for bid on eBay lately, but I was wondering if anyone else has one around. If so, what cities were served that year? I consider 1994 the height of UA's domestic and international ops. Granted, the round-the-world service to DEL didn't start until 1995, but I consider summer 1994 to be UA's international height. Thanks in advance.

I've got a United timetable from 1994 someplace. I'll have to dig it up for you. Having lived outside of IAD in 1994. I remember a few interesting flights around that time. Flight 915 was operated by a 74L and routed CDG-IAD-MIA-EZE. There was a 73S flight that ran IAD-ROC-BUF-ORD and reverse once daily. Atlantic Coast Airlines operated a fleet of Dash 8 100's, Dash 8 300's, EMB-120's, and J32's.

I'd be especially intrigued to see what the trans-Atlantic schedule was looking like. So many of these destinations β Athens, Hamburg, Glasgow, etc β are no longer served. Were these operated via 727s based at the Heathrow hub? I can't imagine these routes were being flown non-stop from Dulles...or were they?!

I flew UA in early '92 or '93 right after they took over the Pan Am routes at Heathrow, and I was flown LAX-LHR on a 747 and LHR-AMS on an internationally-configured 727-200. The 727 had an extended front cabin with sheepskin-covered seats, and a standard coach cabin. The flight was nearly empty and there was a lady from UA HQ on the flight who chatted with me for a while, as she was getting feedback on how UA was doing on these flights.
I think that later the AMS service direct from the U.S. went via GLA for a while, possibly just in winters, before GLA was dropped entirely, but would have to look back in my box of old schedules to see if I have one to confirm.

I think ATH was fed by a 727 from CDG. Certainly 727's fed a lot of German cities from LHR but that was all ceded and handed over to LH when the Star Alliance was formed.

I have a 1996 systemwide, and a summer 1994 SFO/OAK/SJC. If you want I can look through the SFO/OAK/SJC for anything interesting or answer any specific questions, but it obviously doesn't have aircraft types. There's a chance I'll run into a better one too, I have all sorts of other 1994 systemwides, like a DL sitting right next to me, but haven't found a UA one yet.
Regarding AMS -- I was ticketed SFO-LHR and LHR-AMS in January 1997, both on 763's. The SFO-LHR continued on to BRU. This has actually been talked about in this forum, something about the costs to keep those aircraft parked at LHR were a lot higher than to fly them on to AMS/BRU. Anyway my flight was about 30 mins late for no apparent reason, and when I got off the plane 30 mins before my connecting flight departure time with the aircraft right at the next gate, was told I'd been re-booked on BA 6 hours later, next available flight. I couldn't understand why they wouldn't let me get on the flight, the agent kept saying "I'm sorry sir, there wouldn't be time" and I kept saying, "but the airplane is RIGHT THERE, what do you mean there wouldn't be time?" I didn't understand that I'd have to go all the way to the connection centre for a security check. It was truly annoying -- instead of getting to AMS around 0900 I got there around 1800 after my BA flight took a delay of more than 60 minutes waiting for de-icing. I still can't believe they couldn't put me on an earlier BA either -- my flight was about 20 pax on a 757.
