Super Short Haul Routings With UA 752's

Since the merger we've all noticed the ongoing crossfleeting at all the hubs. I think it's fascinating to note that some of the 757s (mainly PMUA) are on daily super short haul routings such as:

EWR-BOS
IAH-AUS
IAH-MSY
CLE-ORD

These routes are quite possibly the shortest for the 757 with the duration of all these examples being only 30-45 minutes long. IAH-AUS is only 30 minutes on the dot. Are there any other examples of this throughout the UA system? Do these routes print money for them with using the 757 and added capacity?

PMUA used to run the 757 on many of these similar routes, like ORD-MSP. Heck I remember when PMUA used to run 757's from ORD-MKE!

It is all about capacity and frequency.
I consider IAH-AUS and MSP-ORD to very similar. Very large business travelers routes that are O&D or connection heavy.

Remember that PMUA had a number of 757's (one of the largest 757 fleets for all domestic service plus a few Hawaii and carribean destinations), so they would show up on a ton of routes.

CLE-ORD

At one time DC-10s were common on CLE-ORD. In November 1979, 4 of UA's 7 daily CLE-ORD flights were DC-10s (plus 3 732s). NW also had one daily DC-10 (plus 4 727s).

UA still regularly operates 757 between DTW & ORD on its sole remaining mainline flight. Currently the 320 is scheduled, but the 757 will return in about two weeks; the flight transitions into the 739 during November.

ORD/DTW was one of the last routes to see DC-10 service; 763 were flown through 2001. Now the route is primarily regional jet.

IAH-AUS
IAH-MSY

Also IAH-SAT. Prior to the merger and CO 757s going transatlantic IAH saw CO 757s to MSY/SAT/AUS and MFE. Prior to that the AB3s were on IAH-MSY. IAH-MSY intermittantly has always been 757/753 domain, also of note IAH-MSY was always a common route to get subbed with 762/764 birds - much like IAH-DEN/MCO. Also since the merger there are alot of Houston travellers using AUS and backtracking back to IAH, as there can be some heavy price gouging going on down here...I've thought about making that 1:45-2:00 drive myself to save $300+.

Almost any narrowbody route on PMUA could have been a 757. They did not favor the A320 or A319 over the 757 for any shorter domestic routes. Every airplane could do every route over the lower 48 for the most part. The 737s used to be favored for short routes, but those mostly got replaced by Embraer 170s and CRJ-700s. The routes that were left mainline could see any narrowbody type. PMUA was just under 100 757s, so that is a lot of airplanes and for fleet utilization, sometimes it made sense to have them on very short routes.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Very interesting to note...but then again you have NK/WN/AA/UA all on IAH/HOU - DFW/DAL. WN has flights at peak times every 30 minutes.

I went to college in New Orleans and always loved flying home to Houston on CO 752s and 753s.

Admittedly hub-to-hub, but NW used to use DC-10's and 753's on MSP-DTW, which is about a 1.5 hour flight.

UA uses 757's on LAX-SFO, which is only about 50 minutes from wheels-up to wheels-down.

NW also used 747s MSP-DTW. In November 1979 they had 2 daily 747s and 2 daily DC-10s on the route. Both of the 747s continued to JFK.

NW's OGG-KOA segment on the 753 comes to mind as a short haul. I was going to say SFO-MRY but someone already beat me to it.

Bottom line is the 757 is a very versatile airplane that can do almost anything.

What added capacity? The ex-UA 757-200s has only 9 more seats than a 737-900, about a 5% difference. In any case, total seat capacity year-over-year on the IAH routes cited is down in all markets for September:

AUS: -12%

MSY: -3%

SAT: -4%

PMCO flew 757s (752/753s) between IAH/ AUS/SAT/MSY and even 764 to MSY/MCO at times. I flew on all of them on those routes in the past.

Here are some vids.

Another amazing thing I notice, is if the weather was good Continental Flight Attendants did Beverage service between IAH and AUS. I had full beverage service with alcohol on a 737-900 flight between IAH/AUS in coach. They really rushed! Coach cabin clapped at the end. I doubt the New UA would do it as I notice we don't get beverage service on any Skywest flight from DAL to IAH in coach and the New UA always says if time permitting on the website, but beverage service was standard on old CO.

Remember UA has to split Dallas traffic between DFW/DAL. Today there were 16 flights between the 2 airports today. (frequency over plane size) Also in the past for a few years DAL-IAH was the number one route in terms of frequency. CO use to offer 16 flights a day between DAL and IAH alone. (When they had the ERJ-135s 10 ER4/6 ER3). There was a flight every 30 mins for the morning and evening rush at DAL.
Together DAL/DFW was 26 to 28 flights a day from IAH and was number one in frequency in the system for years.



Worked Hard. Flew Right. Farewell, Continental. Thanks for the memories.

UA hasn't done this for several years now. They no longer fly mainline into MRY. Boeing even used SFO-MRY as an example of the 757's versatility. You know, it does the longer North Atlantic routes, and then this 80 mile route equally well.

I know they're shorter, but LAX-SFO is about 12% of the 757's max range. It's always struck me as an awful lot of airplane to put on that route. But then again, they have the 757's and they have to use them somewhere.

Yes, but that was in the immediate post-deregulation era when airlines still had enormous planes left over from the frequency restrictions, so, like their 757's, they had to use them somewhere.

In 2004, I flew DTW-MSP on a 753. On the way there, it was empty. I sat in the very front of Y and listened to the engines roar. Lovely. On the way back it was full and I sat in the back. Not lovely. It took 35 minutes to deplane after they'd opened the door. By the time it was over, I was ready to chew nails...

Yes. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, UA routinely flew 757-200s and 767-300ERs on ORD-IND. 757s also flew IND-DEN as well.

For their part, NW often flew 757s on IND-DTW and IND-MSP. For many years, the first flight of the morning on IND-MSP was a 753!

Admittedly hub-to-hub, but NW used to use DC-10's and 753's on MSP-DTW, which is about a 1.5 hour flight.

Even better. Those planes from both MSP and DTW to MKE. About 50 minutes to MSP and about 45 to DTW. The 752/3 only in the past year have become less frequent into MKE. They were the majority of flights to MSP in the PMNW days.

EWR-BOS has the business traffic to fill up on the 757 and also likely lots of connections via the EWR hub. It's interesting how sometimes the 757 will make an appearance on EWR-BOS during non peak hours such as 10pm on a Saturday night. Amazingly by checking the seat maps the loads aren't that terrible off peak either.

This whole thread is kindda funny. We are questioning using a 757 on these short routes. In Japan they use 747's on similar length routes.

Interesting thread. It's amazing how often the venerable B75 comes up in discussion, has to be almost the most talked about aircraft...

I assume that in comparing the efficiency of a/c that the flight time is relevant, as no doubt the climb/take off performance comparisons are different to cruise and descent, and varying flight times will have different proportionate mixes of those phases of flight. For typical flights as discussed in this thread which are all short, and the 9 seat difference between a B752 and 739, which of those two aircraft are beter from an efficiency perspective over these short routes, and how much are we talkijg about on avaregae (assuming full flights and the current cost of fuel)?

Thanks, Bruce.

IMHO... the 'bought-and-paid-for' s-UA 757 domestic equipment is the best thing CO got out of the merger.

You would be surprised how many high-yielding pax, who know nothing about planes, think (perhaps correctly) that a 757 is a better pick than a competitor's 737 or A320. Any extra seats sell themselves  

For the short flights, the ~~12% extra fuel burn of the 757 vs. 737-900 is fairly irrelevant even at current fuel prices. Best to use newest/most efficient aircraft (737-900) on schedules with long flights, so most of the airplanes time isn't spent on the ground, it's in the air realizing the fuel savings.

They are severely underrated. the s-UA 757s have excellent F class seats with 24 of them in the front cabin (ideal for upgrades.) In Economy (in my experience) as long as the flight isn't fully loaded it's actually very easy to get a whole row to yourself. This year alone I had a whole rows on EWR-MIA and LAX-EWR. You don't need F when you have a whole row to yourself and channel 9.

Yeah since the early summer, IIRC. I think they've been flying it since May or June.

Widebody metal is now found on:
IAH-ORD --763
EWR-SFO -- 763
EWR-LAX (most days a 764 is on the route.)
IAH-DEN (sometimes a 763)
IAH-SFO -- 763

And the usual suspects:

ORD-DEN
DEN-LAX
DEN-SFO
SFO-ORD

And the loss of some:

Unless I'm mistaken, none. They seem to be using the fleet more efficiently than CO did, getting in a turn between TATL flights.

I think they may have cut 1 or 2 frames from IAD for the summer (which had done CDG and AMS) but that's it

Mx Positioning and utilization flying for the Hawaii-ETOPS fleet is probably the driver here.

False. Comparing UA's October 2012 schedules with October 2011 (source OAG data):

Ops on 757 as share of total UA operations (including regional affiliates) at that stage length (2011/2012)
0-250 mi: 0.3%/0.3%
251-500 mi: 2.8%/1.0%
501-750 mi: 2.6%/2.1%
751-1000 mi: 8.2%/6.8%
1001 mi and greater: 13.2%/14.9%

500 mi or less 3.1%/1.3%

(Note shares ARE NOT supposed to add to 100.0%)

Share of all UA 757 operations (2011/2012)
0-250 mi: 1.0%/1.0%
251-500 mi: 11.4%/4.3%
501-750 mi: 7.4%/6.5%
751-1000 mi: 20.0%/16.4%
1001 mi and greater: 60.2%/66.4%

500 mi or less: 12.4%/5.3%

(Shares ARE supposed to add to 100.0%)

Average stage length (miles) (2011/2012): 1,675/1,839

The data show that:

-757s are NOT flying a higher proportion of short-haul routes for UA

-757s are flying on average LONGER segments for UA, reflected in:
-The share of 500 mi or less segments dropping from 12.4% to 5.3%
-The average stage length INCREASING by 9.8%

What Tommy is seeing is new routes being flown by 757s out of HIS home airport, most likely distorted by the fact that the last couple of flights he took from EWR were indeed on 757s. But no need to let facts get in the way of sweeping generalizations and baseless assertions.

The whole premise of this post is that crossfleeting has resulted in UA 757s flying "super short-haul routes." Implicit in that assertion is that they weren't before. They may be flying routes that they weren't before, but "super short-haul" flying by 757s has actually decreased. (Although who knows what constitutes "super" short-haul? If EWR-BOS is "super short-haul," is MIA-FLL "super super short-haul"?)

What's happening is essentially in this rightsizing of IAH - in most cases a freq is lost and a flight is upgauged. IAH-MIA has a 752 on it now...the last time this route had anything of any substantial size was back in AB3 days.

As has been posted numerous times in this forum, UA kept three DC-6B's to service these two points from November of 1968 until February 28, 1970 when UA retired the three Six's and entered into a contract with Frontier Airlines to operate a Convair 580 on the route which operated SLC-ELY-EKO-RNO-SFO. (During the time of UA DC-6B service, the flight was also scheduled during some periods to stop in OAK between SFO and RNO, but FL never operated the flight into Oakland as I remember. That arrangement continued until, as I remember, some time in 1979 or 1980, when UA returned to both cities with one B-737-222 flight per day in each direction. The jet service, again, as I remember, did not last more than a year, and it may have been only a few months. At the time, as the CAB and deregulation wound down, there were certain notice requirements that had to be met to drop service. EKO today as EMB-120 service provided by Skywest, under the Delta Connection from SLC, and Great Lakes Airlines serves ELY with one roundtrip a day from Las Vegas with Beechcraft 1900D equipment. Ely is spelled with a "y", not an "i".

Perhaps Zippyjet was joking but I have seen these type of posts before.

One short DL 757 flight that I can think of is SLC-BOI in the summer.

DL sometimes runs the 757 on SLC-JAC, pretty short.

Regular 757s on DL flights from ATL to Florida. DAB and JAX come to mind with flight times under an hour from wheels up to wheels down.

I have been on a 757 COS-DEN on more than one occasion. That right there is a short flight.

They're using these planes because they have them - in the future, these will be 739 routes.
