Its awesome that IAD is getting two express flights from DFW. Previously there was only one IAD DFW flight. Are these two relpacing the one or is it in addition?

Very cool either way!

As much as I hate to see service downgraded from mainline, if that's the case, it's still good to see new flights. Especially at DFW- they need the diversity  Big grin. Good for UA/ UAex for right-sizing their markets!

Both IAD-DFW are going to United Express EMB170's as of 2/16. Goodbye mainline.

I think the EMB-170's will be a lot cooler than the boring 733's or the worst alternative of all, the CRJ.

Hey Texdravid, why are you blaming DFW officials for the downgrade of service on the UA flights? They aren't the ones whose job it is to get out there to corporate America and try and put butts in those seats. Do you also honestly think that a lot of corporate America, especially here in the DFW area is comfortable booking a bankrupt carrier? No offense to UA and their employees, I've flown them a few times and had nice experiences with them, just stating a fact, that many people seem to shy away from a bankrupt carrier, fairly or not.

Also, you have to remember which aairline is baased at DFW.

I think this is a case of UA trying to match capacity to demand.

Shortly before 9/11, UA bumped their IAD-DFW service to 3x a day on mainline. (LAX was 3x daily for a short while as well, I believe.) I flew NRSA on those flights often and loads were okay but rarely full. With AA's dominance on the DFW to IAD and DCA routes, my guess is that UA got mostly DC-based FF and Dallasites connecting to Europe via IAD (in other words, not a huge share of the market).

More frequent service on smaller planes is probably the right answer for UA in this market. And although I haven't flown on an EMB-170 yet, yes, thank you sweet Jesus it isn't another CRJ route.

Also, I'm sure the retirement of some of UA's 737s is playing a role in this route. Didn't somebody say DFW is the only UA mainline city that has no UAX service? Interesting...

Ok, Jay, maybe in THIS instance DFW officials may not be at fault, but with almost everything else, DFW officials are two steps behind other airports.
