Re: United Fleet, Network, and Discussion Thread - Q2 2021

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. The XLR has and 800NM longer range than the 752 and since there is little wind component to South America, it w...

The GIG route is heavily patronized by the oil industry, hence the summer suspension as traffic drops and w...

If UA starts IAD-MEM/BHM, it will be because the DC and NOVA markets demand it. That’s why IAD-HSV exists.

IAD-HSV exists because of NASA and other defense contractor traffic between NOVA and Redstone.
