There was some talk a bit back about testing for crew members on the resumed SFO-PVG flight.

Well it seems both ALPA and AFA backed of their refusal to test upon arrival in China.
Per note, crew members will be tested both in SFO before departure as a pro-active step to mitigate the chances of a positive result when tested on arrival in PVG to complying with Chinese requirement.
Also crews will no longer stay at their regular city layover hotel, but be self-quarantine in their hotel rooms at a PVG airport hotel instead.

The change in layover hotel was expected because even with a negative COVID test, crews will still not be allowed to leave their hotel rooms. With those restrictions still in place there is no reason to send them into the city.

I think it is the best plan to test before they depart SFO this way there is a high probability that the same test results will show up when you're tested again on arrival in PVG. PVG's COVID test is not the invasive test being performed in HKG, so I'm glad ALPA and AFA back off their refusal, thus allowing UA to resume nonstop service.

While I agree that a 3x weekly flight to LAX from SAP seems like a good add, the statement that lots of Hondurans live in the Western US I dont really agree with. LA is the only place in the Western US with any size of a Honduran community and I would agree with the statement "a lot of Hondurans live in LA", but Hondurans overwhelmingly prefer Texas and the East Coast:

Largest Honduran populations as of 2019 by metro area. All over 10,000 listed.

The West Coast can have a number of catrachos on many other places served or closed to destinations served by UA from LAX. Even places as YVR can be reached now easily through LAX. The math will work perfectly for UA.

As the entire industry spitballs in efforts to stimulate demand or capture some traffic flows, these routes make some sense, as these are among the few international destinations that Americans can travel to, and as others have pointed out, quite a number of US citizens own homes in Central America. The reality though is that travel will remain soft until there is a vaccine.

The PVG hotel was in the city center, stayed there many times and saw the crews checking in. Used to play the "who can get there first game." At PVG, there are a few options, but I doubt they rival the downtown location. With the virus around, if I were a crew member, I would prefer to stay at the airport anyhow. It's a sacrifice for sure and thanks to the crew for doing this.

Anyone know how the PVG demand has been? I know there's a lot of US companies with all the manufacturing in China that have to be getting antsy after 6 months of not seeing the operations.

But they don’t. LA is the only place in the western half of North America with a sizable Honduran community. This route will be fine I think but it will be about O&D not connections.

Flights to PVG (via ICN) have been "full" as of late. I use quotation marks with 'full' because there is a China-imposed pax load restriction of 75% for inbound flights.

Smart for UA to fill those Central America gaps from LAX after DL pulled out. SJO and PTY are the highest yielding Central America destinations from the US.

DL LAX-SJO 7x weekly with 752 and AS LAX-SJO 4x weekly with 738 were operating prior to the Covid-19 crisis.
However, I ignore their resumptions plans, in such route.
The southbound sector on DL LAX-SJO was working as red-eyes. Same on DL LAX-GUA.
On the other hand, AV SJO-GUA-LAX 7x weekly also wasn't in service, since many months ago.
Their competitors are taking advantage in that regard. B6 LAX-SJO 7x weekly with 320 was already announced by December 18th.

Very interesting developments. I believe both LAX-GUA and LAX-SAL were recent service resumptions, and are already being increased! LAX-SJO operated previously via GUA; this may be the first time UA operates this route nonstop. These LAX-Central America routes seem to have attracted the interest of several U.S. carriers lately - B6 and DL spring to mind as well as UA. I believe AA and NK have flown the routes in recent years too. DEN-BZE was operated by WN while F9 flew DEN-SJO.. these might be firsts for UA though? All in all, nice to see UA leveraging its hub structure to take advantage of as much Latin America VFR and leisure traffic as possible.

UA LAX-GUA-SJO was indeed in service from the 90s. I remember CO LAX-SAL as seasonal flights during the US summer break.
NK LAX-GUA was briefly operated when Spirit entered in Central America, back in 2007. That service was axed on favour of NK FLL-GUA.
The largest Central American markets from Los Angeles in terms of the VFR market are rather focused in El Salvador and Guatemala.
Historically, the largest amount of regional non-stop flights to California were departing from these places.

Yes, indeed. I can almost remember this route stopping in San Pedro Sula.
LACSA since 1980 was also flying LR SJO-SAL-MEX-LAX with 72S. Sometimes LR SJO-GUA-MEX-LAX.
Pan Am briefly flew PA LAX-GUA-SJO with 747, in the late 70s. AA LAX-SAL-GUA with 752 as well, in the 90s.
The regular non-stops services linking Los Angeles and Costa Rica just began in 2014: DL LAX-SJO with 752.

United is now operating nonstop cargo only flights between the U.S. and PVG. Today UA2808-18 ORD-PVG and UA2815-18 LAX-PVG resumed nonstop service eliminating the need for a tech stop for crew change in NRT (for the ORD flight) and GUM (for the LAX flight). It was already announced passenger service nonstop flights between SFO-PVG would resume on October 21st.

However all of our PEK and CTU cargo only flights are still doing a tech stop for crew change. Right now UA crew members are not allowed to layover at either of those locations.

Quick fleet update
77E: N792UA is schedule to be pulled out of storage at ROW and flown to HKG via SFO/NRT for heavy maintenance.
73G: N15710 is being pulled out of ROW and flown to MCO for maintenance
37K: N68805 is being pulled out of ROW and flown to MCO for maintenance.

It looks like the plan is to return the 737 and the 739 to passenger service after they leave MCO, I'm not sure what the plans are the 77E once it leaves HKG.

Thanks to jayunited and others for the balanced info and insight.

The airline certainly feels like it is gaining some momentum with loads, upgrade lists, airport foot traffic on flights over the last two weeks.

Brighter days are ahead.

It has been seasonal and usually less than daily ever since the pulldown of the CLE hub

It hadn't been loaded yet for this winter so it wasn't clear if they planned on operating it this year.

I've checked on the schedules. It will be a red-eye from LAX to SAP and an early morning departure from SAP. Great schedule! Leaving LAX at 10:45pm Thursday, Saturday an Sundays, arriving into SAP at 5:47am+1. Return at 7:00 am with arrival in LAX at 10:40am on Monday, Friday and Sunday..

Some new domestic United routes:

- IAD to Allentown, Erie, and Pensacola
- ORD to Fort Walton Beach (VPS) and Panama City, FL (ECP). I think these two are returning seasonals?
- IAH to Key West

On the near past, 2000s and 2010s, AA had service from both SAL and SJO to LAX, but with separate flights. AA798 was SAL-LAX and AA928 SJO-LAX. And even on the 90s, but for a brief period, AA tried LAX-GUA/SAL/SJO. I think AA kept until recently the BZE-LAX service too.

I don't recall UA ever serving ORD-VPS, and if they did it hasn't been around long. I'm not sure about ECP, but I believe that's new as well. For years, UA only served IAH from VPS on a once or twice daily 145 as a legacy CO route (no prior UA service at all; they were only in PNS), and up until they added Denver recently, that was all there was. They were pretty nonexistent in the market for a long time.

It's good to see UA add some outreach to smaller areas of Florida, which has traditionally been a weak point for them, but with everybody focusing on sunny markets to survive this winter, they're clearly just jumping on the bandwagon. I'm glad to see IAD-PNS return though.

I know this has been discussed very broadly but does anyone have any numbers on how the UA hubs are performing? For example, Loads factors and numbers of flights vs YOY. I’m assuming DEN/IAH are carry the recovery. ORD/IAD are doing okay. SFO and EWR seem a little slow. EWR definitely seems to be picking up more traction compared to JFK. As for LAX, UA seems to be becoming a bit more aggressive here.

I'm pretty sure UA was flying from ORD to all three of PNS/VPS/ECP before the pandemic, although only weekend service and possibly summer only.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

UA is not jumping on the bandwagon, UA served VPS and ECP from ORD seasonally before the pandemic. I believe UA began seasonal service sometime in 2018 on these routes from ORD.

Also I'm not really sure what crankyflier.com has been doing for the past 8 months, but for them to also post a whole bunch of 767 and 777 flights have been moved to 787s leads me to believe somebody over there hasn't been paying attention. UA with every schedule change has been replacing traditional 767 and 777 international routes with 787s and UA is resuming seasonal flights to Florida at least from ORD.

Here is a link from April 2019 when UA announced new year around nonstop service between IAD-SRQ and IAD-RSW and extended seasonal service IAD-MIA. The link also displays all of UA's hubs and the Florida destinations passenger could reach from each of those hubs.

UA looking to raise more money and is seeking to $3bn through an enhanced equipment trust certificate (EETC) issuance, which is secured on a collateral pool of spare parts, spare engines and aircraft, currently valued at $5.8bn.

The collateral package comprises ALL of UA spare parts inventory, 99 spare engines representing all of the airline’s spare engines, and 352 aircraft across 11 variants, which has represents 43% of United’s mainline operating fleet.

There are some old aircraft in there. One might recall that UA tried to collateralize this bunch of aircraft before (before they did the MileagePlus loan) and decided to pull the offering when it looked like rates might be 11.75% annually.

It’s safe to say more experiments like this will come in the future. Remember a few years ago, UA tried LGA-RDU with a republic E-175.

Now you are throwing in LGA, but your original comment that I commented on had nothing to do with LGA. Don't try to change direction now and include point to point routes now when the post you commented on was clearly directed towards UA hubs.

You want to say UA is jumping on the bandwagon from LGA you are100% correct, but to say we are jumping on the bandwagon when you are referencing certain hubs is clearly not true.

That's not an incorrect statement, so I can throw LGA or whatever else in there if it involves sunny markets.

I did reread your original post, and no where in that post are you referencing any point to point routes. In your post you specifically referenced ORD, IAH, DEN and IAD. Point to point routes like LGA, BOS, MKE, were never mentioned by you or anyone else not even the cranky flyer article.

Again if you are talking about point to point routes you are 100% correct UA is jumping on the band wagon. However your post is talking about UA hubs (which you clearly mentioned) while referencing jumping on a bandwagon is not 100% correct. UA has been adding routes to secondary cities in Florida from our hubs since 2018.

Indeed.

The Financial Times takes a similar view with an apt title. After this there wont be much left to mortgage as they are throwing in just about anything random they can as collateral.

United throws ‘kitchen sink’ at investors to secure $3bn borrowing
https://www.ft.com/content/b11a4b7f-b18 ... 922db6d731

In good news though they managed a 6% interest rate, far better than last time when creditors wanted 10%+ (Though as the article mentions investment-grade corporate bonds are closer to 2% yield today).
Also Goldman Sachs agreed to provide a liquidity line to cover 18-months of interest payments.

All told this makes $22bil United has raised in the last 7-months. One heck of a pile of debt to dig out of.

I had no idea that their Moody's credit rating dropped to Ba2 (considered "junk" in the non investment grade/speculative category). American is sitting just below at Ba3 and Delta only just in the prime category. I hadn't realized they'd ended up this over leveraged and seemingly short on options. If things don't break even by 2Q2021 as Kirby hopes, it seems pretty imperative that there be additional stimulus. In either case, it seems like their debt load is going to cripple them for years to come without an epic turnaround. I hate to use the "B" word, but seems like it may be the only way out for at least a couple of US airlines in the coming years.

Remembering back to my Accounting classes in grad school (it's a bit foggy, so don't take me as an expert), but they may not be able to value some assets higher if they have already depreciated them in years past, or they might be subject to higher taxes on something equivalent to a sales gain in value. If they were actually selling the planes, the increased value would more than make up for the taxes on that increased value of a depreciated asset, but as they are only leveraging their value for credit, they would be paying a chunk of the money they need to borrow in taxes.

If someone else is currently a tax professional, feel free to clean up the mess that I just wrote.

They can value the assets at a higher value than what they have them listed as on the books, they will just need to book the gain and pay taxes on that gain if they sell the asset. Re the values of some of the aircraft, i agree with you that its interesting to look at.

U.S. airlines being in the junk bond/speculative ratings categories isn't new. DL had climbed out not that long ago only to fall back down in Covid. IIRC only WN, AS and DL began Covid as investment-grade. January 15, 2020, Moody's affirmed a rating of Ba2 on UA, two notches below the bottom of investment grade. EETCs can carry higher ratings than senior unsecured debt. Barron's cited an analyst not impressed with UA's attempt to use an EETC for this tranche.

https://www.barrons.com/articles/united ... 1603209959

Let's see if this goes through and what kind of interest rate(s) they'll be paying.

I wouldn't say it is a crippling debt load, yet. American's at $50bn probably is. It is a concerning sum though. It all depends on the terms, and when it matures. I am sure the company will be looking to restructure some of the debt when they can achieve better rates and more favorable terms.

I wonder if some of this recent offering will go to paying off some of the higher interest accumulated from earlier in the crisis?

I think UA is now somewhere near $32B dollars in debt, like you stated that is a staggering number. But all 3 of the US3 are up to their eyeballs in debt I think DL is somewhere around $26B in debt and who knows how much AA is in.

I know what UA told employees during the earnings live event but we really need to get our daily cash burn rate down.


In other UA news on today October 21st UA is beta testing a global health app on flights between the UK and the U.S.

For now the test was conducted on UA's LHR-EWR flight, it was 100% voluntary, passengers were not required to participate.

Volunteers were given a COVID test by certified lab the test results were then uploaded to the app on their smartphone. Passengers also completed the required health screening questions on their smartphone. Once the test result and the questionnaire are done the app generates a QR code that is scanned by airline staff (before boarding) and border officials (upon arrival). The CDC is working with their counterpart in the UK the aim is to hopefully reopen the border between these two countries, and to perhaps expand this to other countries.

The app eventually could be use to upload vaccination recorded.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-heal ... SKBN2760HI

I may be going out on a limb here but I think in 2021 if people want to travel internationally they will need to show a negative COVID test or show they have been vaccinated (once available). I think this will be the new norm for all of 2021. Perhaps in 2022 countries may fully reopen meaning passengers will no longer need to show a negative test or vaccination records.
