Rumour: United To BHX?

In august/september our family are looking to go to New York. My dad claims that when he was searching for flights he saw a DIRECT UA flight from BHX to JFK. Is this for real??

No airlines actually even fly the BHX-JFK route so it can't be a codeshare. However I am wondering about maybe the routing was BHX-DUB-JFK beacuse of the EI and the UA codeshare or something??

Would love to know if this is really gonna happen!!!

Thanks.

Is he sure that it wasn't a UA codeshare on the BHX-EWR flight operated by CO ? That would be my guess .

Unfortunately, there is no direct UA flight from BHX, nor is there one planned.

UA do offer a codeshare on CO27, as Kiwiandrew stated - United Flight 3211 operated by Continental Airlines.

I sure would love to see more longhaul traffic at BHX though!!!

Now now, UA would be in MAN (the next most important British market, after London) loooooong before BHX. That said, I imagine they are probably looking at quite a few European cities - perhaps a return to MXP and/or DUS, or more capitals - DUB and MAD will be covered by EI, and partner *A already fly to CPH and VIE, but maybe ARN, TXL, PRG, ATH, and/or IST would do well for them. I would think DUS, TXL, and IST would be the most logical European additions, though I think other transatlantic flights - TLV, CAI, DEL, BOM, maybe even AMM or RUH - might be more lucrative right now.


Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

If UA were to serve BHX, it wouldn't be from New York. It would most likely be from IAD or Chicago.

I think the likely explanation is when your Dad was looking for flights, the booking engine have has shown flights to other airports in the NYC metro area, and instead of displaying the CO flight it has shown the same flight with a UA flight code...

Depending on the booking engine used, they quite often show alternative airports serving the same city... For example, I have seen in the past US Airways LGW to CLT flight, being operated by BMI, and was searching for flights LHR to CLT.

Also some booking engines also allow you to search by city instead and have their own IATA code as opposed to IATA codes for the airport itself. Like some engines recognise LON as London (covering LHR, LGW, STN, LTN and LCY) and NYC as New York covering (JFK, EWR and LGA), etc...

If you do a search for JFK-BHX on united.com a JFK-IAD-EWR-BXH flight operated by UA and CO pops up....perhaps that is what your dad is looking at.

United don't even service the JFK-LHR route so no hope a regional connection anytime soon.

Any regional UA flight that does happen will almost certainly be Washington- Manchester eventuallly.
