INSTRUCTIONS

WHAT IS THIS REPORT?
This compares what is for sale THIS WEEK for the stated period versus what was for sale LAST WEEK...It does NOT compare to last year or now (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED).

HOW DO I READ IT?
XXX-YYY DEC 4>5 JAN 4>5 ; means that the listed airline changed the frequency between the two airports to add from 4 to 5 roundtrips in December and January. No other months were changed. I only list one direction, although it is possible the listed change is only one way. It is too difficult to average the two directions. I assume the change is roundtrip and that is most often the case.

HOW ARE THE DAILY DEPARTURES CALCULATED?
This report uses total operations for the month listed, divided over the days in the month.

WHAT ARE THE FRACTIONAL FLIGHTS?
Non-daily operations create fractional weekly service. In most cases flights are rounded, but in the case of international service or markets with low frequency, fractions are shown. If a flight operated 5 days out of 7, it would show 0.8 flights.

WHY ARE THERE WEIRD FREQUENCIES AT Macedonian Airlines (Greece)">IN FAR AWAY MONTHS FOR LCCs?
Most airlines publish schedules 11 months in advance. This report covers the next 9 months. That avoids seeing schedules as they are loaded. Several LCCs load their schedules less than 9 months into the future. Their schedules may also end mid-month. If B6 loads their schedule until Jan15, all flights in Janaury will show half frequency because of the way the report is created.

WHY IS A WHOLE AIRLINE'S SCHEDULE SHOWN AS CHANGING FOR A FUTURE MONTH?
Similarly to the previous question, some airlines load their schedule from nothing inside the 9 month window of this report. When their schedule is extended it will show as new service because there was no previous schedule to compare to. In some instances I will show a more valid comparison against another period.

THOSE FLIGHTS AREN'T DELTA, THEY ARE PINNACLE
This report only shows the marketing code. It is too complicated to show all the operators.

THE FREQUENCIES MAY HAVE CHANGED AS YOU SHOW, BUT THE SEATS DIDNT CHANGE BECAUSE OF EQUIPMENT SWAPS
That is a natural weakness of a frequency based report, but it provides something to discuss below.

THE FREQUENCY DOESN'T SHOW A CHANGE, E.G. 4>4
This happens as a result of rounding. There is a change in service that is large enough to be listed, but through rounding it does not appear.

I marked some of the ones I thought were interesting with an "*".

Never thought I'd live to see IAH-BWI go to 3x daily. That's pretty low.

On the bright side it's crazy how UA will fly SFO-EWR at 10x daily in the fall.

Does it usually go to 4x daily in the winter? It makes sense though, that's an example of a route whose transfer pax can be better carried over DEN or ORD.

I believe they are pretty normal, but they were not planned otherwise they would have already been selling the reduced schedule.

And this week, we see the UA hubs trending........

CLE no change
DEN   
EWR   
IAD no change
IAH         
LAX   
ORD   
SFO   

Well, I guess most NOV changes are cuts, except with to/from EWR flying southward.

And the right-sizing continues......

(And again, enilria, my friend, just another thanks for your efforts week in/week out with this, and a reminder that you do keep us entertained as well as informed here. I don't know what's gonna happen if one day..... for whatever reason..... maybe you just get tired of this and don't want to do this anymore, and will just stop? I'll probably have to go someplace where they can help me with my withdrawal symptoms...... So a    for your past efforts and a    so that you may keep on going a long, long time here with this gig.......)

Minor changes though...

Not sure why UA gave back some of those EWR frequencies to GRR, SAV, BUF. Quite random, IMHO.

On the bright side one of those frequencies is a 757:

Hub to Hub, 17 daily total from EWR and JFK to SFO.

EWR-SFO 4 A319, 3 737-800, 2 737-900, 1 757

JFK-SFO 7 757

I noticed a lot more A319s and A320s on Trans-Cons from EWR. UA has been flying them for years from IAD to the West Coast. The issue is they have less first class seats than sCO's 737-800s, not great for upgrades.

sCO 737-800s either have 16 or 20 First class seats, depending on which version. The UA A319s have 8 First Class seats, and their A320s have 12. Big difference in premium capacity. I feel UA should try to keep the Airbuses on the shorter routes and let the 737s handle the trans-Cons from EWR and IAD. Also the Airbuses lack Directv which is more of an issue on a Trans-Con than it is on EWR-TPA.

UA ORD-CLE NOV 13>14

I count 15 daily on October 25,

This is normal seasonal reductions, similar wo the day-of-the-week reductions they did over at least the past 2 winters on the West Coast - Asia routes.

Note that SEA-NRT, SEA-KIX, LAX-NRT, LAX-HND remain daily on the West Coast.

My guess is that initally DL was going to try to keep daily service this winter considering how the Pacific has been outperforming so far this year, but it looks like they've changed their mind recently, considering the continued economic uncertainty.

STT, I wouldn't look at the skeds for those flights too far in advance. They will change. They are likely dummy skeds.

UA has swapped planes this summer with only a weeks notice on certain routes.

One time I checked EWR-LAX for June 7th a week out. It was all PMCO metal and a few days later reversed to 3-4 PMUA metal, and the rest PMCO. They change it up quite frequently.

Would take these fall schedules with a grain of salt. I'm sure the a/c types will change several times before the date.

This should be commensurate with the opening of the sUA airbus and sUA756 base at IAH. I'm surfing through the schedules for Oct. 5th on united.com to see any differences...

Hmm...a second 763 on SFO...I wonder what route it turns from at IAH...or is it just SFO-IAH-SFO

I found it, it operates EWR-IAH as UA272 arrival 1:31p then appears to turn to SFO as UA587 3:31p departure. Only in one direction.

It will be interesting to see if UA will have the same problems as B6 with the A320 on westbound transcons during the winter.

Quoting enilria (Thread starter):
UA ORD-YYC NOV 3>4 DEC 3>4



Quite surprising to see another daily flight added to this route, must be some good demand. Likely another CR7 on that flight

Quoting enilria (Thread starter):
*AS BLI-OGG NOV 0>0.4 DEC 0>0.5 JAN 0>0.6 FEB 0>0.6 MAR 0>0.6



It will be interesting to see how this route will perform, I think it will likely more Canadians than Americans flying considering the close proximity to the border.


25 usairways85 : Wow, pretty big hit here. This used to be 4/5 738/739. So not only a hit in premium capacity but also PMUA aircraft with virtually no IFE.
26 tommy767 : Virtually no IFE? Unlike the 738/739 the UA 320 doesn't charge for IFE. Big plus there. Again I would take these schedules with a grain of salt. I pu
27 BoeingGuy : Apparently all of AS's BLI routes are doing really well. I'd be interested in seeing the breakdown. There's a decent cachement area on the US side to
28 STT757 : The morning flight is a 73G, but as you noted big reduction in premium seating and no DirecTv. UA can't replace these narrow body Airbuses soon enoug
29 BC77008 : Well, yeah, as long as you like watching old re-runs of Big Bang Theory.
30 FlyPNS1 : The DirecTV is nice, but in my experience pretty poorly used and not a very good value proposition. It's going to be a long time before most of them
31 usairways85 : Yea, but... If the selection of shows appeals to you then it's not bad, but if you don't like the shows or you travel weekly and you're on your 2nd o
32 Roseflyer : Not completely abnormal during the slower season. These are their lowest capacity transpacific routes with the 767s. Since these routes are already d
33 tommy767 : DTV is a major bummer for the cost alone. I flew MIA-EWR and it was $7.99. Had it been $4-5 then it might have been worth it. Keeping in mind that LC
34 Hawaiian763 : Glad to see Hawaiian is continuing on with it's expansion of Australia and Asia, will this route use the A332 or B763?
35 drerx7 : The schedule varies - on 10/9 I see varying 737s and a 752...so UA is truly rightsizing demand based on days of the week and what not - a practice th
36 usairways85 : AC outlets. I just received a new laptop so my battery life is really good, however previously I was lucky to get 2 hours on my old laptop.

38 HPRamper : Still better than watching brand-new episodes of reality shows which is what you'll get on almost every channel.
39 RWA380 : Just as I have saying, UAX are slowly pulling out of the Pacific Northwest, I know these cuts are at low season, but I don't see UAX flying much long
40 slclaxkixkhh : Is this just a seasonal suspension? It's a little surprising that DL can't make SLC-MEX work, especially since both cities are Sky Team hubs.
41 enilria : I'm sure AS can staple them on to the bottom of their list of partners. It looks permanent. Is it really a Summer only market? Maybe AM will fly it.
42 STT757 : Not sure if it's still the case, but when you used your CO airlines Chase credit card to activate the DirecTv you saved $2. Not sure about the new Mi
43 kgaiflyer : When I flew SFO-YYJ the day before Thanksgiving last year, I discovered some on the plane had bought safety tickets through YVR on AC -- so completel

46 MKE22 : Thanks Enilria for always doing a good job with these!
47 FlyingSicilian : Seems UA is pulling more out of ABQ? Is it that bad in the winter normally?

49 incitatus : You mean the most seasonal.
50 PSU.DTW.SCE : Interesting data. That illustrates at a high level why there are so many adjustments throughout the year. It supports the notion that has been previo
51 incitatus : From your point of view certainly. Other airlines may be "aggressive in maintaining a full schedule through off-season". From my point of view that i
52 enilria : ...and Transpac too. Fewer flights, but mega-ASMs. I agree. I think CO really pioneered the concept of day-of-week cancels in a 45-60 day window in s

54 enilria : Pretty much nothing changes after the crew bid which is ~30 days prior to the month beginning typically.
55 PHX787 : I can easily see AM taking this up....there are a looooooot of latinos in Utah Sheesh you're telling me. We can't even book a flight outta CVG anymor
