Here is a list of departures from UA stations with 50+ departures this summer. The date I used was June 30, 2011 (a Thursday). This is the same date that was used to collect the data for the similar threads regarding DL's and AA's summer schedules, so that comparisons can be made. Because the schedules for UA and CO have not yet been fully combined (most flights, but not all, appear in the UA e-timetable), data was gathered from both the UA electronic timetable and from continental.com. Even though I expect there to be small tweaks to the schedule between now and June, the following should be a decent representation of how UA's summer schedule will look at their busiest stations.
Note: I used the aircraft codes from the UA timetable. For those not familiar with the timetable, 320 and 32S are both used for A320-200 (not sure exactly what the difference is), and 767 and 764 are both used for 767-400 (767 = domestic/hawaii and 764 = international). Also for those not familiar, 73G = 737-700. I believe the rest of the codes are fairly intuitive. Also note that I did not use a separate code for p.s. 757s, so the 752 totals for LAX and SFO include those flights.
Yes, but UA also likes to append "32S" to routes that could be operated by a 319 or a 320, with last minute changes possible... at least that is my experience. UA internally uses nose numbers to differentiate ex-Ted, standard configuration, and A320-232s equipped with life rafts, utilized on flights to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Quoting SESGDL (Reply 8): These numbers don't add up. With ORD, for example, I'm counting 227 mainline for what's been posted; 287 for IAH. I count different figures for each hub compared to what you've broken down.
The other figures are broken down into narrowbody and widebody. If you add up both the narrowbody and widebodies, you'll get your figures.
Window seats may be over-rated, but I'll take a window seat on a DC9 anyday

Quoting a340crew (Reply 12): UA also has the A332 out of IAD - MAD (operated by EI ) its an EI aircraft, but united flight similar to how they out source the regional carriers so I would include this on the IAD list
Of all the changes made todate I am surprised nothing has been done about this flight, I am sure it will go the way of the dodo soon and go to UA metal.

Very interesting. The mainline versus regional statistics are interesting; although when you look at Terminal 2 at ORD, it certainly makes sense. What a zoo! Also, would be interesting to see the hubs broken down by number of seats available. I would think that SFO and LAX would move up in the rankings. Furthermore, I'm surprised to see that DEN beats out EWR in the actual amount of airplanes serving the hub. EWR often time looks like a parking lot for 777s.
