For July 11th thru July 17th, United expects another 2.5 million revenue passengers, I thought once all the holiday travel was over the number would drop down to at least 2.4 million revenue passengers but as it turns out I was wrong. July is shaping up to be one of the best months United has seen since the start of the pandemic. But it isn't so nice for people traveling out of EWR where runway construction and FAA imposed limits, limit United to around 240 daily departures. Next week UA at EWR revenue passenger load factor remains in the ninety percent range at 92% load factor. Other hubs like IAH, DEN, LAX, IAD, will all see load factors between 86.5% - 89.8% both ORD and SFO will be close to 85% load factor, while EWR load factor will remain in the 90s for the third week in a row now.
This just makes me question if there had been no pandemic, no COVID how in the world would the FAA have dealt with EWR and runway construction during normal operations? Would the FAA have forced United to reduce the schedule from 430 daily flights (pre-pandemic) to where we are now at 240 daily departures.
These LF’s include Longhaul?
Good to see they are working to resolve the limited flight issue in October. Bumping up to 330 daily flights.
