No, UA is the biggest loser.
Because AA+AS and DL can now supply corp contracts with flights to tech and financial centers over SEA instead of SFO. Not to mention SEA - Asia is shorter than SFO - Asia. I can see Apple, Google, Microsoft, etc. all flock to AA/AS or DL instead of UA.
Add to this the horrible presence of UA at the East Coast (EWR = junk), UA is screwed. Unless they come up quickly with a master stroke.
This post is so laughable I almost didn't bother responding to it.
UA has a HUGE ff base in the Bay Area and the tech companies. Why are they suddenly going to abandon UA and nonstop SIN and TLV and soon-to-be DUB flights to make a 2- or 3-stop connection to those cities via AA or DL? Not to mention all the U.S. cities that are a 1-stop flight away from SFO the same as SEA?
And say what you will about EWR as an airport and delays, but UA's hub there is simply unmatched by any other carrier at any other NYC-area airport, with UA and *A partners soon to offer service to all 5 continents/regions, including extensive East Asia nonstop service (at least prior to the coronavirus) not offered by AA or DL.
I don't know what UA did to you to tick you off, but before you make ridiculous posts like this on here, you should really check your bias.
"UALFAson"... look in the mirror if you talk about bias.
To call EWR a "third world airport" would be an insult to 3rd world airports.
The financial boys want to fly to/from LGA. Where's UA?
The government boys want to fly/from DCA. Not slep to IAD. Where's UA?
No...time for UA to admit its snoozefest and take a hard look at B6.
Have you actually been to any of the airports or cities you're talking about? While I will allow the A gates at EWR are pretty awful, the C terminal has excellent (albeit expensive) shopping and dining options.
From LGA, UA offers frequent service to hubs in ORD, IAH, and DEN. "The financial boys" currently find LGA a mess with the construction and EWR is just as fast to get to from Midtown.
From DCA, UA also offers frequent service to hubs in ORD, IAH, and DEN, along with a SFO nonstop. They are also starting shuttle service to EWR with CRJ-550 aircraft. I am from Northern Virginia. Plenty of people "schlep" out to IAD for transcon and international flights. For my brother, who lives in the western NoVa suburbs and travels with his job with the government, it's not a schlep at all. Again, your opinions of things do not make them facts or true of everyone else.
Anyway, this thread is about AA and AS, not UA.
"We hope you've enjoyed flying with us as much as we've enjoyed taking you for a ride."
