Re: United Fleet, Network, & Livery Thread - 2020

The below story shows that UA and NZ have traded LHR slots with UA dropping 11pm arvl, adding 1050am arrival UA dropping 11:05pm dept, adding 320pm departure. These would seem to be superior times, but does it mean the AM eastbound from IAD or EWR would be cancelled? https://www.stuff.co.nz/busines...
