Denver is a big city with 2.7 million people. There is demand for it to have a couple flights to Europe.
I fly on both these several times and they are always full. Often times overbooked.
Even though LH
is partners with UA
, most of the passengers on LH
's flight are heading to Denver, not connecting onto UA
's flights. This is from personal observations. I've flown on the flight twice so far.
As for British Airways, again most are coming to Denver. Some connect on UA
to Aspen or Vail. This is from personal observation from my 10 to 15 times that I've flown on it.
