Basically Ted was just a way or united to dump first class to low yielding markets and try to offer a slightly less expensive product. It primarily served LAS PHX and Florida from the traditional united airports. Eventually UA gave up trying to compete with low costs and shrunk its presence in these airports and almost disappeared from Florida. They needed the A320 s back in mainline service when they retired the 737s.
It's main intention when founded was to compete with frontier in DEN so the majority of its flights were from there. It's fleet grew to 57 airplanes so it was quite large and it flew to Mexico and SJU.

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