I was checking united.com and saw a CO 738 routing a late day BOS-SFO and returning as a second red eye back into BOS. I checked it on 6/23 and 6/24 and the seat maps are rather full -- but the flight seems to vanish during the second week in July. Anybody know why they are doing this?

Also: Anybody know the routing of this particular aircraft? Does it turn into EWR or IAH at a certain point?

According to CO's PC timetable with a 5/19 /11 release date, It looks like it runs X236 until the end of August. You may have been looking at an off-peak day.
Regarding routings, it would just be taking two RON aircraft and exchanging them.

UA/CO is adding a lot of CO flying to UA hubs.

CO will be flying ANC-SFO/DEN/ORD in addition to SEA and IAH. UA will be flying their own metal ORD-ANC as well.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

the weirdest one is going UA 744 to CO 738 on HKG-SIN

Those HKG Intra-Asia Interport segments don't really warrant large widebody aircraft as they have traditionally carried large amounts of really low yield fifth freedom traffic.

HKG-SGN also and NRT-HKG with 737's UA is a USA Asia Carrier not a HKG to SGN, SIN, NRT Carrier need to"rightsize" the aircraft for the mission at hand, and Upgrade HNL-GUM-NRT to a 777 where the airline can use the seats

Are there particular routes that CO's 737s are better suited for versus UA's A-32Xs? Transcons or short-hauls for example? Just trying to see some of the logic in which ex-UA routes are getting CO birds now.
