I completely agree I think I think ORD will perhaps see an expansion of their seasonal service this year ORD-FCO has already started it seasonal service has been extended into October. ORD-DUB/EDI/SNN may have their seasonal service extended next year as well and perhaps ORD-DUB may be upgaged from a 757 to a 763 in 2018 but I don't think ORD will see any new international flights in 2018, The focus at ORD is really on domestic expansion.
From LAX I think UA will add LAX-BNE, LAX-HKG, If UA could secure a frequency I think UA would add LAX-PEK (all flights operated using 789's)
From EWR I think UA might add additional flights to South America, they are already relaunching EWR-EZE, I think EWR-GIG might be next but perhaps seasonal.
I think IAD, ORD, and IAH will maintain the status quo with no additional international flights but perhaps some upgages in equipment.
UA is starting to grow DEN domestically and I think that growth will fuel some international flights. I think one of the 6 daily LHR flights UA operates out of EWR will be switched over to operate DEN-LHR, (or perhaps UA may try to get their hands on another LHR slot) and I also think we will see UA launch DEN-FRA, (both flight utilizing 788's.).
Although I know this will probably never happen I would love to see ORD-TLV, and ORD-BOM/DEL
