Re: UA Long Haul Capacity Changes - Some Questions

The W19/20 77W schedule is as follows: EWR - PVG/GRU/NRT/BOM/TLV 2x daily; and from SFO - TPE/NRT/FRA 2x daily. By my count this flying would only require 15 frames. The schedules for routes like EWR-PVG and EWR-NRT combine nicely with EWR-GRU, EWR-BOM, etc., meaning that you only need 3 aircraft t...
