I can't wait to see UA's August update, Earlier UA wanted to get EWR north of 200 daily departures in August but because the recovery has stalled UA announced they would pump the brakes especially at EWR. I know they were still working on trimming the August schedule when they made the announcement so it wouldn't surprise me if UA reduced the schedule back down to 120 - 130 daily departures out of EWR. Also SFO might get a trim as well while the mid-continent hubs escape relativity unscathed.
In the first update to the August UA was expecting to fly around 40% of our pre-COVID schedule. Once the signs started showing the economy stalling UA pulled that schedule and reduced it to 35% pre-COVID, and followed it up with a public statement that UA would hold capacity between 35% - 40% for the remainder of the year.
