I don't see how IAD can ever compete with ATL or CLT to Florida due to its high costs and not having as many gates. It has a lot of transcon and TATL demand from a top 5 domestic market. I think UA should add more flights to Caribbean from IAD. The number of year round destinations to Latin America...Jump to post
It's a market UA has actively ignored for many years, and it's cost them business from passengers not in IAD, IAH, EWR, or ORD who want to fly nonstop or have an easy connection to vacation. Does UA have to be everything to everyone though? UA does just fine with out an SE hub or a massive Florida ...Jump to post
United has long since determined that tags don’t work. You have to add an additional day of crew scheduling to do the tag. For example a two day becomes a three day or a three day becomes a four day (US-EZE day 1, rest, RT EZE-MVD, rest, EZE-US). Additionally, the fare to the second stop is often s...Jump to post

I'm not sure why UA would be more interested in SFO-FLL over SFO-MIA? Its yields are normally better to MIA. Mint really killed them on SFO-FLL. I’m pretty sure JayUnited has a better feel for the market dynamics than most of the rest of us. If Mint ‘killed’ them, then why are they still flying it?...Jump to post
I could see DEN-NRT returning before IAH-NRT when restrictions ease. It may be a while for Asia to reopen to the U.S. so United may not need both routes as they serve similar connection markets. United can easily route connections to Denver when Japan does reopen in the future. United seems focused...Jump to post

SFO may be tricky because tech is the one industry that is embracing remote working more favorably than any other. That may make full recovery harder there than other hubs.Jump to post

Yes den makes alot more sense to me then dfw. Dfw has lots of competition to the cities you will connect too and since it's star alliance the dfw origin has to feed the entire flight. Denver offers a huge amount of connection options each small but you combined alot of markets Turkish is arguably o...Jump to post
Hi, I have not read much about the CRJ550 lately. Has UA already refitted enough CRJ200’s for their needs, or are more of them coming? I hear nothing but good things about the 550, (I have yet to fly one!) but I am assuming that the new(ish) RJ has been a success? (They certainly look nice in pictu...Jump to post
Yes, the real question is what took so long. With UA growing to 700 flights, it only makes sense. UA finally being combative at DEN once again to try to beat out F9 and WN, I guess. As someone who used to live there, I really don't see much demand going to IST. UA even hesitated with bringing back ...Jump to post
Both of these routes make sense for TK. DFW: Look at all of the non-oneworld international airlines in DFW: KL, KE, EK, LH, AF. Clear indication of the large O&D traffic coming from the DFW area.

My understanding is that part of the reason the 77As were being used on the routes they were was due to the issue of slots. One 77A can almost replace 2x 739 or 3x 738. So goin from 1x 77A to 1x738 and 1x 764 seems to defeat the purpose of them. While I think that making the 764 a 77A replacement i...Jump to post

What are some P2P opportunities that are rumored on UA? United already jumped on some opportunities this past winter, and we are even flying some P2P routes this summer. If I remember correctly United is launching something like 20 or 22 P2P routes this summer. I apologize I don't remember the exac...Jump to post
Given that the 77W is obsolete. UA should use the 77W as a stopgap until the 779 enters production. Regardless, those are brand new green aircraft with a lot of useful life. The 77W replacement plan is the least of their concerns in the near term. Before they worry about the 77Ws, they have to stra...Jump to post
It's possible to do EWR-SDU if range stats are accurate. The longest range 752 UA flew with the only issue was headwinds was EWR-TXL, Berlin. That route is 800 miles shorter than EWR-SDU.

Between June 5th and August 1st, United is suspending its Houston IAH - Rio de Janeiro GIG route. Currently operated 5x w with 763ER; daily service from GRU to IAH will continue as scheduled.

Speaking of IAD, IAD-PDX increases to 2x daily starting on June 3rd, which is way above 2019 pre-COVID capacity. Excellent news. I’ve always thought IAD was underutilized.

MEM and BHM both have DCA service. That's going to be the O&D preference. True, though the area around Dulles has experienced robust business development recently. IAD provides a great alternative to ATL for MEM-Europe and BHM-Europe. I don't think UA has any desire to capture BHM-Europe or it ...Jump to post
