UA will resume daily SFO-TPE service in April with 744. Does anyone know what's UA's plan for 2x daily services to NRT and NGO. I just don't see TPE has enough traffic load to support 3x daily flights to US either nonstop or via Japan, unless there is enoguh O&D traffic to NGO.

They had better or they're going to have an airplane spending a lot of time on the ground again.

KUL, MNL possibilities are endless.
|Quoting Centrair (Reply 10):|
That all being said, there were rumors that UA might consider ORD-NGO. It didn't work for AA but it might work for UA as they could capture the the Toyota contract to their Midwest facilities. That contract is currently with NW.
I would not mind this route as it would give me an alternate to the midwest.
|Quoting FlyDreamliner (Reply 6):|
UA can certainly carry the TPE route, and likely they will see better loads than NGO, also in terms of west coast to TPE, they are competing with EVA, who is more or less parternless in north america, and China Airlines, whose partner, DL, cannot offer half the connectivity out of LAX that UA can offer out of SFO for north american connections. Good for UA.

BR code-shares the TPE-LAX/SFO/SEA flights with CO and AA. I would say that BR is possibly "better partnered" than CI for the North American market.
