Poor IAD. It seems like when something needs cutting they are the first to see it.
It has nothing to do with IAD, and everything to do with AMS.

United serves AMS from EWR, IAD, ORD, IAH, and SFO. Trimming IAD for a few weeks to comply with capacity restrictions makes the most logical sense, because that traffic can either be routed through EWR or reaccommodated via IAD-BRU. It would be a lot more disruptive by cutting another hub and trying to funnel those connections elsewhere. IAD-AMS is typically a 788 anyway, and their market share to AMS is usually pretty evenly split with KLM.
It's fascinating how much capacity UA has historically had at AMS given that it has no connectivity on the AMS end, though obviously plenty from all the US hubs it flies there from. it quite an impressive operation.
