I don't know about that. Qantas serve LAX
33 times a week or something similarly incredible. That said, I wouldn't fly on a US carrier if you paid me, no way. So maybe people (especially Aussies, who make up the majority of US-Aus pax) are flying QF
are half empty? Anyone flown the route lately?
I should add UA
have a five storey office building in Sydney, I don't think they could just pull out. It's not a station manager and some third-party contractors, UA
's commitment to Sydney is quite hefty. Plus they have a code share with the excellent Virgin Blue.
On balance, while no-one is flying US carriers if they have a choice right now, I doubt UA
are pulling out of Sydney anytime soon.
