Continental will add new flights between Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport and Bakersfield and Palm Springs, Calif.; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Grand Junction, Colo.; Hobbs, N.M.; Montreal; and Reno, Nev. From Cleveland Hopkins International, Continental will begin flights to Cincinnati, Ohio, and from New York/Newark Liberty, the carrier will begin service to Des Moines, Iowa.

United plans new service from Washington Dulles International Airport to Louisville, Ky.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Salt Lake City; Tulsa, Okla. and Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, subject to government approval. United will also start new service from Denver International Airport to Amarillo, Dallas Love Field and Lubbock, Texas; from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas and from San Francisco International Airport to New Orleans.

LUV and AMA-DEN are a shot across the WN bow. CLE gets basically nothing. Hmm...

Funny but many of these markets are really resumptions instead of all new service.
Most will be via UAX flying.

I hope this is just Round 1 of new routes.

Agreed, but my question is, whats causing them to add DAL? Is it because CO/UA is now one airline, UA can "take" CO's gates and such at DAL?

2nd--is UA actually seeing a shift of DEN-DFW to DEN-XXX-DAL on WN? I can definitely say WN is seeing a huge amount of thru's DEN-XXX-DAL.

3rd-UA could start DEN-DAL anytime as they have the aircraft for it, 56 seats or less. Why didn't they before?

Does it go back to being able to finally use CO and their gates?

Love to see the expansion from IAH, although Bakersfield, Reno, and Palm Springs were all served until the economy tanked. I am surprised Boise didn't come back with this initial group.

Hobbs, New Mexico came out of nowhere but with natural gas back in play, it makes sense to try it. AA has done well with Roswell-DFW, so who knows...

Montreal is interesting. I guess this means AC's daily CR7 service has done well enough for the Star Carriers to announce what is in effect a second daily flight.

Also, I am surprised to see Grand Junction announced. I would have thought that Durango would have come back first.

And three is not to shabby for CID either:

Very nice.. I was hoping for EWN (New Bern, NC) to get service to either IAD or EWR but oh well. I guess they are happy going with US.

Wishing there was a RDU-DEN or RDU-SFO but I guess there were other places to make money.

Anywho.. very good to see some cross pollination going on.

A lot of this is "connecting the dots" and is possible because of either
a) being able to utilize existing airport facilities with little addditional incremental cost
b) ability to build on the strong(er) market share of the other airline in these existing stations with the merged airline.

Are earnings calls always this fun? I don't ever remember them being this exciting!

Well, we knew IAH-ASE wouldn't be the ONLY flight made possible by the merger  .

This is half expected (LAX-AUS was pretty much a given) and half completely shocking (how does CO's tiny SLC presence suddenly make IAD-SLC viable?). Then again, just about everything is actually a resumption.

So, I'm really looking forward to the cross-fleeting that will really change the international ops  .

Any insight into the a/c types flying the other new stuff? I'm assuming these cross-fleeting changes you speak of will go beyond the hub-hub changes we saw from enilria in his weekly post.

126 Post contains images kgaiflyer : I actually fly this route. Wowee -- the 735s are back! Oh, be still my heart.
127 Post contains images kgaiflyer : IIRC, this route is also flown by New Mexico Airlines [LW] in a Cessna 208A.
128 kgaiflyer : Okay, with all due respect . . . Each of the Washington DC airports has a 6am to Houston. BWI and DCA both have 738s. IAD has a 145LR. Can't IAD just
129 LAXintl : Maybe, but remember these 70-seaters are not coming from thin air. For each new CO flying they are doing, some other previous UA market is loosing a f
130 mtnwest1979 : I read that Lea County ( where Hobbs is) got the money together to offer to UA/CO to start service into Hobbs. But Pacific Wings/NMA gets the federal
131 STT757 : US might garner the lion-share of the Charlotte traffic on that route, but CO is obviously handling most of the New Jersey traffic on the route. Unli
132 drerx7 : When do you think we will see those begin or be announced?
133 STT757 : Whenever they reach an agreement with the pilots union.
134 kgaiflyer : Ah, so. That was never clear, and you would *not believe* the rumors floating around.
135 LouieP2186 : They did and it was always empty so they dropped it when we (Continental) where still with SkyTeam....I can say this when IAH-CLE was full I dropped
136 LouieP2186 : As a former employee of ExpressJet I can tell you DAL was up to 12 a day to IAH. Now the morning flights where mostly about half full and the afterno
137 SlcDeltaRUmd11 : IIRC didnt Continental recently already announce a few LAX-Mexico flights on top of United going from 1x daily to 3x daily to MEX? I think in time we
138 STT757 : IAH changes; IAH-ABQ (3 ERJ145, 1 CR-7, 1 737-500) IAH-ATL (5 ERJ145, 1 CR-7, 2 737-500) IAH-COS (2 ERJ145, 3 CR-7) IAH-CMH (4 ERJ145, 1 CR-7 IAH-DFW
139 scorpy : With all these IAH and EWR routes getting the CR7, do we know what PMUA routes are losing it and getting the E145 or CRJ200? I hope not DTW-ORD.
140 STT757 : Or Q400.
141 STT757 : Just doing a quick search I noticed right now UA is flying IAD-YYZ with 2 CR-7, 1 ERJ-170, 2 ERJ145. In January UA shows IAD-YYZ with 5 ERJ145 and 1
142 drerx7 : Noticed some slight changes in the UA/CO schedule at IAH. IAH-DEN 2x738 4x753 1xCR7 2x752(UA) IAH-IAD very interesting 1xE45 1xCR7 4x752 IAH-SFO 3x738
143 Post contains images SurfandSnow : Our first taste of what the future UA will look like. Good. CO can easily fill their void as it continues to receive new narrowbody a/c. In turn, thi
144 United1 : EWR-PLS was announced this morning....4 times a week starting 02/18 moving to daily service 03/06.
145 STT757 : Awesome, CO has been doing PLS and St.Lucia as charters from EWR for years.
146 kgaiflyer : Last time I flew Delta IAD-SLC, it was on an AVOD 752 with virtually every seat filled -- up from 738s which used to fly the route. This has always b
147 sldispatcher : According to another site, several new announcments of this type (changes in craft/cities served) are going to be announced soon. I'm glad to see wave
148 joeljack : Interesting enough, OMA-DEN has been trending down every quarter that passes over the last 3 years but starting at the end of december, it goes from
149 drerx7 : Any hints on other aircraft changes? I can't wait to see what upgauges IAH gets.
150 BACCALA : Continental Airlines will begin nonstop flights between its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Providenciales, Turks and C
151 ABQopsHP : In CRP we are expecting the Q400s in the spring. Provided Colgan can get their parts inventory built up, so they can move some of the Q's down from E
152 Post contains images UnitedTristar : looks like in January ORD to BWI is down from 7 mainline to 3 mainline and 2 ERJ 145's it also appears that SFO to EUG is down to all 50 seat RJ's to
153 SurfandSnow : WHAT?!? BWI is a very strong station for UA, I remember they flying 767s on DEN-BWI in the early to mid-2000s. Why would they make such drastic cuts
154 Post contains images UnitedTristar : yea I was kinda in shock too, they use to have DC10's and 767's on ORD to BWI not 10/15 years ago!!! -m
155 FL787 : ORD-MSP appears to have been hit pretty hard as well. UA has been running 12-13 flights a day for a long time but it appears that it will go down to t
156 Post contains images kgaiflyer : Well! Since BWI currently has *no* UAX whatsoever, I guess it's "Welcome to the club."
157 Post contains images kgaiflyer : Am I seeing things, or is ORD-DCA / DCA-ORD elevating to *14* 319/320 a day? That's a major shift of emphasis for the Washington DC area. (Oh lordy -
158 CALPSAFltSkeds : I see what's been announced as some new service relate to markets into UA or CO hubs that the other carrier already serves as a station. So, I'd like
159 FL787 : That's actually a decrease. ORD-DCA has normally been 15 mainline flights per day. The E70s replacing mainline has happened only recently. So ORD-DCA
160 FL787 : Looks like ORD-LAS is taking an enormous cut. It is currently at 7 daily flights but goes down to 3(!) in January. LAS is certainly low yielding but i
161 SurfandSnow : No surprise there. At some point they are going to have to add ORD-PBI/FLL back to link the major ORD hub to strong CO stations, and I daresay put ma
162 Post contains images drerx7 : It may be that they are in the process of uploading or preparing mainline crossfleeting. 3-4x daily 752s on ORD-LAS may be getting ready for the addi
163 GlobalCabotage : WN could also be impacting ORD-LAS, not to mention both cities have an ugly economy with less travel. We've seen this impact to ORD so far: EWR: Now h
164 Post contains images izbtmnhd : I'm not in denial. Everyone knows your opinion and I agree that the UA CLE hub probably has a very short shelf life. That being said, UA is adding se
165 STT757 : Seeing more changes in the schedules for EWR, lots of ERJs being replaced by Q400s and ERJ-170s: EWR- ALB 2 Q200, 2 Q400- ATL 5 ERJ-170, 1 737-500, 1
166 STT757 : UA will be flying Q-400s on routes from IAH starting in March: So far the Q400 routes I'm seeing from IAH are: DAL, TUL, JAN, MFE.
167 drerx7 : Any clues to mainline fleet integration?
168 milesrich : UA, prior to Deregulation operated DSM-LGA/JFK with DC-8's and 727's respectively. Today things are different obviously, but DSM has grown, and is no
