Could it support a 752? Cleveland used to get DC-10, 752 aircraft to ORD.

US Airways currently has three flights a day to DEN, (two A319's and one A321). I could imagine United doing well on flights to DEN from CLT. Possibly A319, A320, or 757's.

United's Eastern network from DEN is quite weak for a hub of its size.

UA doesn't even serve CVG or PIT from DEN.

Before 9/11, UA's goal was to add more Eastern routes from it's DEN hub, however these plans have now been put on hold as United's main goal is to recover financially. Then when the time is right, you'll see United continue on with its plans.

There are MANY Eastern networks that United doesn't serve from DEN.

cause UA can't get a CRJ to fly the route yet :P

But trust me, once there is an RJ that can make it, UA will put on 8 flights a day to Denver *smirk*

Ual777contrail,

With the connections they provide at DEN, the flights should do fine.
