UA/US New And Enhanced Routes

Thu May 25, 2000 7:17 am

Part of an official release from the USAirways site. sorry for the poor format:

"United plans to serve all cities now served by US Airways. United plans to also offer 64 new daily non-stop flights
in the U.S. and 29 new daily international flights. Passengers will benefit from more non-stop domestic flights. For
example:

From Pittsburgh, United plans to introduce the only daily non-stop service to San Jose, CA and Portland,
OR and add two non-stops a day to Denver.
From Philadelphia, United plans to offer the only daily non-stop service to San Jose, CA, Portland, OR and
Orange County, CA.
From Charlotte, United plans to introduce the only daily non-stop service to Portland, OR, and San Antonio,
TX.
From Washington Dulles, United plans to introduce the only daily non-stop service to Orange County, CA.
From Tampa, United plans to provide the only daily non-stop service to San Francisco.

Passengers will also benefit from more flights to Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Some examples of
these flights include:

From Pittsburgh, United plans to introduce new one-stop service to significant Asian capitals, such as
Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul and Singapore, as well as to Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and other Latin American
cities.
From Washington Dulles, United plans to add the only daily non-stop flights to Copenhagen and Bermuda.
From Philadelphia, United plans to introduce the only non-stop service to four international destinations -
Amsterdam, Brussels, Vancouver and Barbados. United also plans to offer additional daily non-stop service to Frankfurt, Germany.
From Charlotte, United plans to provide the only one-stop service to Melbourne and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; Taipei, and Seoul and new one-stop service from Charlotte to Caracas, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires and Santiago.

The transaction will significantly enhance the ability of US Airways hubs in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Charlotte to grow and compete with other hubs and international gateways, giving passengers easier access to the West and to destinations in Latin America, Asia and Europe."

For the international routes, it looks like we will be seeing many more widebodies (747s) at present USAirways hubs. Imagine over 8 747 flights a week into Charlotte, of all places!

Nice to hear the added service for PDX (and the west in general) from the east, but also am hoping the new UAL would add asian and/or europe route(s) out of PDX to the compete with Dl who is currently the only asian player.

Though I guess politically, their PR engine must appease travelers in the region they are currently swollowing up
