Where UA Needs To Be Flying

Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:39 pm

I think that UA needs to develop its presence long haul/internationally if it wants to start making more $$$. What routes do you think they could/would fly?

My Thoughts:
Europe:
ORD-MAN
IAD-MAN
ORD-FCO
IAD-FCO
ORD-MUC
ORD-AMS(if not already)
ORD-MAD
IAD-MAD
ORD-ZRH
IAD-ZRH

South America:
ORD-SCL
IAD-SCL
LAX-GRU
ORD-GIG
ORD-LIM
ORD-SJO

Caribbean:
ORD-MBJ
IAD-MBJ-KIN
ORD-KIN

OK I'll throw out a thought! It seems right now that the LCC's that do not operate any, or if they do it is very limited International flying, are the ones making money? So maybe focus on domestic would be my choice.

IAD/ORD-EDI.

EDI is totally underserved in the transatlantic market. CO is the only operator to the US when it starts. UA would have no competition on the route.
And yes EDI WOULD be able to handle a 763!

I think it's Ironic that UA at one time DID fly IAD-FCO&MAD with a 747 and IAD-ZRH, and IAD-MAD, and IAD-GLA. These routes were, apparantly thrown out because they simply could not make enough money, even with almost full load factors, in the case of IAD-GLA. They said that they're sad they threw out the FCO and MAD routes, as they were helpful.

As for the carribean routes you mentioned, you will see Ted take over some carribean, Florida, and other leisure routes out of IAD, ORD, and DEN. There are tons of new Ted routes they've not announced out of IAD and ORD.

So, just wait and see!  Smile

I think UA needs to be flying to where it can make money and commit to the pension benefits they granted their employees. Sorry to burst your bubble, but long haul fanciful intercontinental destinations are not what are going to save this airline.

You might as well start a topic that says, UA needs to buy US Airways, launch daily nonstop 747-400 service from all destination to all destinations and spend $9.6 billion dollars upgrading their business and first class products so that people might actually want to fly them, because people are sick and tired of plastic forks when you pay $6,000 to fly to London.

Then co-launched by President Moron, launch 5 times daily Shuttle Interballistic to the moon with continuing service to Mars (one way flights only).

Then new livery, new planes, new cabin crew, new meals, new CEO, new pilots, new headquarters, new pension plan, new re-organization plan, new hub structure, yet more flights to more fanciful destinations and then new double daily service to Pluto.

But wait, lets get rid of the 737-500's launch ever increasing destinations to South America thanks to the thoughtful and wonderful insight of LHR001. Then dump the 767's, buy all Airbus planes then re-brand yet again (just to keep you on your toes). Then change the name to Continental Airlines Wantabe (I don't think anyone will notice), change the livery once again, and announce the closure to the LA hub based on the advice of LHR001 as written on Airliners.net.

After all that you can stand at the end of the bow of the new Queen Mary II, (aka, UA Hail Mary) and scream in the middle of the North Atlantic I am "King of the World" while America West just did their inaugural fly over of their acquisition of the UA LHR slots, while your strike an iceberg once again and sink to your death.

Ahh I feel better now.

I think they shold start doing something in SJU. American gets profit in here to almost every city they fly to, and it is just because there is no competition. Why would they have about 5 flights a day to DFW, 5 more to ORD, about 10 to JFK and some 8 to MIA, not to mention the ones to BOS, EWR, FLL, MCO, etc? They just have no competition from the other pals. USAirways is taking hands on the issue, they added flights to BOS and LGA, but just like TWA did it in their final days! So probably its USAirways final days too (hope not), and then we will be alone with AA again. So United should go ahead and try SJU from IAD and DEN, other than just ORD twice a day.

I flew back in 1994 IAD-MAD and the flights were packed. Then they dropped the route, and JK codeshare it with them with a JK 767. After 9/11 JK dropped...flights between US & Spain are a missing in *A, maybe US will help a bit with PHL-MAD...

They should also think about Mexico. After they breakup with MX...they should consider more destinations in Mexico.

ORD-MUC (which is also covered well by a daily LH A343) changed to IAD-MUC some time ago, mostly because of better East Coast conncetions so I guess we won´t see that flight anytime soon.
I would rather predict a DEN-MUC flight which could be operated by UA but more likely by LH.

They should expand to Israel. Continental flies there from EWR. They already are a big presence in Asia, but I think they could be bigger. Also, no U.S. airline has a dominant presence in Africa. U.A. could fly to Cairo, much like TWA did with a 763 a few years ago. I think they should also restart ORD-ZRH, and compete with Continental, American, and Delta on the route. Don't know if it would really benefit that much, but certainly if I were in charge of an airline, I would make sure I serve all of the cities as my rivals. I'm not sure if the question lies on whether UA should serve more cities. They already serve many more cities than their rivals. I think AA is the one that really needs to the expanding. Heard they are adding ORD-HKG. AA needs to establish a dominating presence in Asia like United, and establish services to Thailand and Korea, besides China and Japan. They should also add services to Australia to further increase competition with United. Continental, United, and Northwest probably are choices people would pick over American to go to Asia. Currently, the only airport in Asia American serves is Tokyo-Narita in Japan.

keep the intl routes in place, concentrate on asia, aa is and maybe some others will wanna start knocking on asia big time as they have no other place to go but the middle east to expand, all the pa routes that we have in asia if we have not lost them should be used, we all know yield is everything on routes but ua needs to keep the svc levels up in order to keep the big $$$ in f/c from going to someone else..my 2 centavos

In regards to your qualifications... Thank you for stating that you went to school in London.... I do respect that! And you were hired prior to 9-11... I respect that as well... As stated... Thank You.... A lot of post 9-11 Flight Attendants don't seem to grasp what being a Flight Attendant really is...

I am a very fond flyer of both United and American... I do not like airlines like WN, B6, or TZ... They are nice for certain people... however, we all have choices...

LHR001, I think you just might be going over the line (concerning Flygirlhels) here a bit... having an opinion is one thing, but your comments...

Anyhow, moving back to the topic and to your suggestion of this new route for UA...

Berlin using a 767-300 to connect with Lufthansa codeshare


Why should this work for UA, if LH has tried it (and failed)? And since LH doesn't really operate a hub in Berlin, it really wouldn't make much sense: seeing that they're even kicking DUS from the network, and they aren't serving HAM, I doubt TXL would be a good move for them.

My qualifications.... Let's just say a whole World more than yours!

Oh... because you were a flight attendant sometime in the past?


I was hired prior to 9/11....
And as to my background, a degree in economics from a good school in London....


And I believe that asking what your basis is for your theories is a perfectly legitimate question.... unless your methods aren't legitimate which is probably the case as you hide behind poor attempts at insults....

For starters, It is Kahului, not Kahalui. Also, there is no need to connect to AQ codeshare in Kona and Kahului because the only place to go from these places is Honolulu, which is already well served by United. The AQ codeshares are to connect to/from UA flights thru HNL to OGG/KOA/LIH/ITO, not the other way around.

OGG and KOA are already well served by HA, AQ, UA, AA and others to various mainland cities and I doubt UA would add flights from all of their hubs to these cities.

Star Alliance as a whole operates 20 daily flights out of HEL. SAS only flies to two cities from HEL: CPH and ARN. There is no SAS feed in HEL.

DEN-LHR is illegal, as of Bermuda II.

From ORD UAL really needs to start ATH. Chicago has a big Greek population and in addition, the Greek tourist market seems strong for Americans and lastly Chicago is a pretty good place to connect flights.

This is just really nothing but i think UAL would profit on an African route from IAD. I think the market is there.

when dreaming of new international routes for UA we must think of two important factors: 1. Cargo and 2. further connectivity/ passenger feed.

This is why HKG is such a sore spot for UA right now. With no alliance partner in this city we're left with lots of Cargo (which is fantastic) but only O/D traffic.

Wasn't there a rumour that we would inagurate new international routes this summer?
Anyway, we will be flying out of IAD to Cancun (once a week-320), San Jose, Costa Rica(once a week-757), San Juan (upgraded to daily 320), St. Thomas (once a week-320) and a few others. Well, it's a start!

If I had it my way, UNITED wouldn't start any new mainline flights, they would continue to put a strangle hold on these greyhound carriers once and for all.


I would go after JETBLUE in DEN
knock down F9 in DEN, and push then and AS off the DEN-ANC routes.
focus more on making ORD better connecting city, get AWAC and the express posses back in line.

get AWAC ***OFF*** the C concourse in ORD.

get ready for TED'S big day, and be ready with a new paint scheme.

If anything that has been said earlier would make sense in my opinion it would be DEN-NRT or finally DEN-LHR, other than that I wouldn't know.

BobNWA,


All I can say is that it was based in the Persian Gulf... and we operated the A330 among other aircraft types. We have a codeshare with a U.S. based airline in addition to many others. And we have recieved tons of awards for stellar service and comfort.


United777300,


United is offering codeshares via SpanAir to Spain. LOT to Poland. Air New Zealand to New Zealand. Denmark and Sweden on SAS. Austrian Airlines to Austria.


Alitalia ORD,


Kuwait Airways is starting ORD-ATH in 2004 using a A340-300. Olympic Airways has tried the route before and were unable to sustain it due to timing, lack of demand, and crew rest.

Aloha 73G,

American Airlines has found profit on routes from OGG-DFW, OGG-ORD! Why wouldn't United even attempt at serving Hawaii to Chicago again nonstop?

Both. Flights will continue as is, 2x a week ORD-AMS-KWI. No KWI-ATH-ORD service.

What is your source for the Chicago to Athens route being cancelled?

It has already been reported on this forum. Also, the fact that Kuwait Airlines has yet to announce it (start date was 01Mar04) is also another sign.

Hong Kong traffic is almost all specific to Hong Kong... Are you aware of the Chinese ex-pat communities in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York... It is huge! Hong Kong also serves as a connecting point if need be to Singapore on United Airlines. Hong Kong from SFO is almost always packed to the rim... This time of year if you are looking for a seat.. good luck!

Why can you not answer simple questions? Is it because you don't have an answer that others will like? Or because we're pushing the right buttons with you...

I'd like to see the return of SEA-HKG but acknowledge that it's unlikely.

I think UA should consider to restart the round-the-world trip. Before UA with a trip from LHR-JFK-LAX-HKG-BKK or Delhi-LHR which is a great way from tourist.

On the other hand, I think UA should avoid some routes with so many competitors.

I have one route in mind that UA can try again...HKG-HNL-DEN with a B777ER. I don't know why no airline try this route especially HKG-HNL. This route was active more than 15 years ago...I think in PanAm era.
