About UA to LHR: We know EWR has all High-J 763’s, what equipment is being used from other UA hubs to LHR?
Going by current June schedules...
SFO-LHR: 1x 77W + 1x 772
LAX-LHR: 1x 789
DEN-LHR: 1x 789
IAH-LHR: 2x 772
ORD-LHR: 3x 76L
IAD-LHR: 1x 752 + 2x 772
EWR-LHR: 6x 76L
IAD has 1x 76L + 1x 772 + 1x 752
Interesting: 19 flights a day!
I would have assumed more from SFO and LAX, but it is still impressive at 19 total. Also impressive are 288 Polaris seats everyday from EWR @ $6,655 in April. (Naturally anyone flying on a Corp contact would be paying about half, and X number of award & upgrades, etc) I’ve done 3 RT’s on this route so far: all 6 legs Polaris was 100% full, so I do wonder how many of the 288 on average are paid?
I'm going need to sit down and figure out how many ”Polaris” seats from the USA there are everyday.
I have always thought adding another morning flight from EWR at 7am might work, arriving LHR earlier (about 7pm). More civilized hour to arrive and get comfy in your hotel.
Does anything have the legs to fly HNL/LHR nonstop, RT?
And, as a ”dreamer” I wish UA would launch an all biz A319 from EWR to London City (like BA) - it would be interesting to see if EWR’s proximity to Manhattan’s Financial District would be a draw!
How does 19 flights from USA to LHR stack up against DL & AA? And of the US3, who offers the most lie flat business & First RT to LHR?
