I think thats a pretty accurate synopsis. You didnt mention IAH and since its my home airport Ill comment on what I think is realistic. -Non-Latin Long Haul flying limited to LHR, AMS, FRA, and NRT. -All Latin destinations remain with the possible exception of some smaller Mexican routes -Domestic ...Jump to post
I thought it would be AA. I wasn’t sure for a while You know I never thought we'd see another carving of the cooked pig like we did with Pan Am but here we are. Let's see here... - United bring your plate right over here we're going to give you the rest of ORD, yes congratulations on your new fortr...Jump to post
For long haul international, here's a very premature speculation of what will stay and go. I don't think UA will cut any South American cities since most cities are only served through IAH in the network. We will probably lose MUC as Star traffic consolidates to FRA, and AMS will get downgauged due...Jump to post
IAH is gaining two destinations in Mississippi. AA's EAS contract to Meridian and Hattiesburg ended and UA was awarded the renewal. Flights start July 1. Good news! Always nice to see a ray of light in these stormy times. The demolition of the old terminal C North is well underway, good to see thin...Jump to post
I am not optimistic about the widespread resumption of service on 5/20. I don't think United has gotten that far along in its planning. They will be doing the schedule changes in batches over the coming weeks as to not overwhelm the system by doing it all at once. As of now - the planned internatio...Jump to post
Here is what I could realistically see over the next year for UA: a retrenchment into hub specialties. That means that EWR would handle all non-FRA/LON/MUC Europe with maybe a couple of other destinations from IAD and ORD. I could see IAH and SFO just being LHR and FRA on UA metal. That means SFO w...Jump to post

Could this be return of "Ansett"?Jump to post
You guys are all discussing what routes UA is going to cut next but simply United is not allowed to cut any until Sept. 1st, 2022. It is part of the bailout that the airlines received. Daily routes have to be served at least 5x weekly while sub daily ones need to be at least 1x a week. Good news, L...Jump to post
Agreed - with oil prices down IAH will see some cuts. I was referring mostly to the comment that UA might cut Houston because they're #3 in Latin America and therefore it's not worth keeping anymore. I'll go ahead and predict that IAH will remain UA's Latin America hub for years to come. I see, but...Jump to post
On the DL version of this thread people were suggesting that MSP or DTW would be de-hubbed. The discussion here is relatively tame by comparison! Although I concede that the few comments regarding UA dropping IAH as a hub are equally ridiculous... Dropping hard to see, but they will definitely cut ...Jump to post
Another year passes by as 2019 draws to a close and 2020 is on the approach. 2019 has been a pretty successful year for both IAH and HOU as both have had growth and had new destinations added.

jayunited, have you heard of any new destinations overseas for UA (TPAC or TATL)? I would like to see UA serve MNL & BKK in the Pacific and WAW in Europe. UA has already announced our new international destinations for spring and summer 2020, I don't think we will see another announcement cover...Jump to post
I'm waiting for the UA TATL and TPAC route announcements soon. HUB-HUB routes will be up-gauged to B787-10 (FRA MUC LHR). Then the 789's will be free'ed up for route expansion. An example is the 77W going on SFO-SYD. MNL & BKK are rumored out of SFO and a possible launch of WAW (Poland just ent...Jump to post

Is it possible that UA threw in stock footage of NYC, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco to make the video? Just throwing it out there, since we don't know what will be announced. For all we know, UA could be pulling our leg to hide what really will be announced?Jump to post

IAH-PVG or another int’l add or announcing Terminal B North Renovations? How would either of those have anything to do with Space and why would they announce it in Chicago if thats what was being thought? Just guessing, it’s likely neither of the two, but it probably could be something out of IAH, ...Jump to post

Is it possible thant UA's IAH-SYD service played a role in this downgrade? Going from a 388 to a 789 is a huge downgrade for DFW, DFW will now only have 1 380 flying there.

But isn’t IAH growing as well, In an article Kirby said they planned IAH to be over 600 in the near future.
Talk is cheap. I look at actions. UA has been growing DEN like crazy. IAH, not nearly as much.
