Re: Alaska Announces BOI-AUS/ORD, Relaunches Idaho Falls and Redding

UA used to fly BOI-ORD in the 70s and 80s, typically with 727s. But, as the DEN hub built up, I think UA felt it made sense to funnel O&D Chicago traffic through DEN, rather than have ORD as a second connecting point on what typically was 1 R/T daily.
