Yes for now.

One of several beach weekend markets UA operates to.

HP/US similarly primarily ran their flights over the weekends also.

Wasn't this route once served by UA in the past?

Not that I can recall.

UA has done SFO-PVR for a fair amount of years.

Leave the airplanes just sitting on the ramp all day long or send them to PVR, SJD and places like that. Not a bad idea.

Just another low yield market that won't do much for the bottom line..

But seriously...

I understand that they are able to use an under utilized plane on a Saturday but I don't understand these 1x weekly flights. I would never book a flight on an airline to a destination they only fly to once a week. If something goes wrong, you miss the flight, you need to leave a couple of days early or late, you are SOL, you have to wait a WEEK for the next flight. I am sure there is something I am missing here so someone please explain...

Western and PSA. The IATA codes have been reassigned.

Weekend only service is a quite popular thing with airlines particularly on the East Coast to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Allows planes to earn revenue on days when schedules are reduced anyhow - and generally have quite high load factors being popular and work well for vacationers.

I'm not sure what your fear is -- if you miss the flight then you either take another flight (for instance UA flies SFO-PVR near daily) or pay and to fly someone else out. Its not like PVR or most all these weekend only airports have no other air service, nor is it the airlines fault you missed your flights.

Using your analogy and fear, I guess you would never drive let say LAX-LAS since your car might break down in the desert? or shop in a store when on vacation as you dont have that chain at home and could never return the product etc... Life is full of little risks.
