Re: UA EWR-EZE Route Performance

American owns Argentina. I would never consider UA or DL. DL has issues all the time and with only 1 flight a day they have no wiggle room for any MX issues. Let's remember that the only reason UA added EWREZE was because the VPs at Network Planning (many ex-AA) knew how well AA did on that route. ...

Re: Did United ever fly JFK-MIA?

It is such a shame MIA closed before the merger.

Re: Did United ever fly JFK-MIA?

Yep. Pre-merger MIA was not a mainline station (ie at least 6 months of the year it was RJ only, IIRC) for UA. Actually UA did fly mainline seasonally in 2009-2010. It was a 757 on DEN-MIA-DEN of all places and not ORD. EWR-MIA was served until late 1999 on 727s and 735s. However, I do remember pos...
