Maybe we should look at this as less of a "United cutting back" issue and more of a "optimizing Star Alliance" issue. With the strong coverage by United's Star partners, especially in Europe, does United really need to fly to so many European destinations? Sure, non-stops are nice, but with seamless alliance connections, I wouldn't mind having to change planes in either London, Copenhagen or Frankfurt to get to Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels or other "second tier" European cities. I want to see a strong airline industry and a successful United Airlines. If this is what it takes to keep people employed and get United out of Chapter 11, then go for it!
As for flights from SFO to Europe....if the cargo and passenger yields don't justify so many frequencies, then cut them. Full plans of people on cut rate tickets and an empty cargo hold, don't help the bottom line. United shouldn't lose money just for our convenience.
