UA treats DEN like the bast**d child of all UA hubs. I doubt it happens, but if it does it would be successful.
You think DEN
is bad. Come to IAD
, buddy. Then you'll have something to complain about. At least UA
has said that DEN
is for domestic only. We're the bastard child, @ IAD
and will always be. It's pitiful. Words can't express how we feel...LOL
|Quoting United_Fan (Reply 32):|
I noticed that IAD now has NH & UA doing flights to NRT. Is there really enough to fill a NH773 and a UA 772 daily ? I think DEN-NRT would work if there aren't weight penalties or altitude problems.
I thought the same. But it seems that they complement each other very well, let's just leave it like that. I check my flights to see what how they do
|Quoting Mav75 (Reply 38):|
But if payload hits are an issue due to the altitude, then again...why not use 744's?
I remember someone saying in another thread that UA
is handcuffed with respect to the 744s. They're tied up in Asia and the 2 non-stop Frankfurt flights, SFO
Honestly, folks, I'm not interested in expanding to Asia so much. I mean, expansion is always good, and I'm glad we're a dominant player somewhere, but if we get the IAD
(if, yes, if everyone) authority, can we please focus on something else. South America, anyone? I'd like to become what we once were known for: "Worldwide Service." I know that we are close to non-existent in South America, but that doesn't mean that we can't do some intense research and figure out what to do. I know this is a pipedream, I know. I just wanted to throw that out there. Maybe we can do South America from the LAX
, and DEN
since the east coast so tied up with AA
, and DL
, but ONLY when we get some new planes. We can't do any experimental expanding since we barely have the equipment to do hardly anything now. Well, I guess I just explained why we stay in money-making Asia, 'eh?
