UA service to MMH for this winter's ski season never started because of COVID. By next year, UA should be moving Mammoth Mountain flights from MMH down to BIH.

Re: UA starting ANC-FAI?!

This actually isn't the first time United has operated this route. Looking at their October 1991 flight schedules, flight UA 333 operated Chicago-Seattle/Tacoma-Anchorage-Fairbanks with a 727-200. ORD-SEA 4:37pm-6:49pm SEA-ANC 7:35pm-9:54pm ANC-FAI 10:25pm-11:17pm I'm not sure how long that lasted....

Looking at Wikipedia, Advanced Air has an agreement with Surf Air so I wonder of MMH will be added to Surf Air's new bus...

Re: OAG Changes 7/1/2018: B6 Drops FLL-STI; UA Drops Routes or Misfile?;UA Adds LAX-MMH; AA Adds PHX-YEG for Winter

Interesting UA is adding LAX-MMH to fill the void left by AS/QX. They have served it for a long time so I’d expect this to do well seasonally. Pretty sure the route is subsidized by the town/resort. Yes, the town and the ski area subsidize the route with a tourist tax referred to as the TBID. On fl...
