It's Begun: UA Flying RJs EWR-MIA

Sat Feb 22, 2014 7:35 pm

This was a big surprise - never thought I would see the day when RJs (no matter how "large") would be flying on a NYC-MIA route!

UA has 2 of them running today!

UA 3473 EWR 7:52a MIA 11:05a E70 Operated by Shuttle America
UA 3446 EWR 12:24p MIA 3:40p E70 Operated by Shuttle America

UA 3473 EWR 11:41a MIA 2:52p E70 Operated by Shuttle America
UA 3446 EWR 4:16p MIA 7:29p E70 Operated by Shuttle America

No biggie.

JetBlue has been flying large RJs for almost a decade now between NYC and South FL.

Also dont forget Delta - for example today E170s to FLL and PBI from NYC.

According to ual.com it's a Sat/Sun only thing and they're also running an extra flight on those days compared to a weekday schedule. Mid-March it reduces to just 1 RJ on the weekends if that's any consolation.

If you're going to fly in an RJ, an E170 is definitely the way to go.

Not the first time for E70s on this route. Anyway, EWR-SoFL is firmly a mainline-dominated market for UA, plenty of 737s and A320s to go around.

EWR-FLL is all mainline, as also EWR-MCO.
I don't see why we should worry when UA is flying an E70 in this route. Also, it is only on weekends. E70 are very comfy. They are not ERJ or CRJ.

Weekends, during the slow travel season, UA is flying a 70 seater to a competitor's hub....and this is news? Have you seen how many RJs DL runs from JFK to ORD all year long?

Quoting FlyAAS80 (Reply 7):

That said, why doesn't DL, B6 an UA throw more E170s/E190s on the LGA/JFK/EWR-FL routes year-round? From what I read in the forum, you can pretty much throw as much capacity on these routes with cheap airfare and fill the planes. Are the Embraer's too expensive to operate given the yields? (Did I just answer my own question?)

If it's a popular and comfortable ride for customers, can these airlines make it work instead of just weekends or when the season is slow? JAX and SRQ appear to make sense, but probably not going to see an hourly LGA-MCO service on E175s.

This doesn't surprise me. All of their other flights on those days are mainline, and AA has a very strong presence at MIA. At least it is an E170 and not an ER4 like UA has on EWR-ATL.

This is totally chicken little

I randomly checked upcoming weekdays and weekends

Weekdays are 4x all mainline

Weekends are 4x mainline plus 2x E70

This is additional capacity on weekends .... What's wrong with that ? It's a known fact that AA controls NYC-MIA and B6 controls NYC-FLL

Heck, tomorrow UA is 7x all mainline on NYC-FLL, an airport AA doesn't even serve from nyc

The airlines that fly RJs on long mainline type routes like EWR-MIA seem to thing the average heavy traveler will be just as happy with that travel experience. I completely avoid such aircraft/service. It takes so much perceived and actual time to get a decent sized brief case at he end of the trip, then again wait for regular luggage, the seats are narrower, and there appears to be less pitch between seat rows. It is a cramped decline in quality of service. And, in many airports, the terminal areas are like early 1960s gate areas with gate folks who don't know how to pleasantly speak on the PA.

I stopped flying AA's EWR-ORD, and I certainly wouldn't fly EWR-MIA.

The aircrafts are fine. I've flown in some as corporate private ones.

Yes, but now the majority of the EWR-ORD flights are also E-175s so not that bad. Keep in mind EWR-ORD is a competitor's hub-to-hub route so UA carries a lot of passengers on the route.

Quoting N62NA (Reply 16):

UA is adding a few flights on weekends with large RJs. It's not replacing or reducing capacity, it's adding some capacity with added frequency.

This is hardly surprising!
ORD-MIA has been on a Mesa CR7 for quite a while, while AA flies 767s.
In this instance, it's about boosting capacity in a cost-controlled way. And frankly, the E70 can be a more comfortable experience in Y than many mainline jets!

One of the problems is the demand for frequency for a limited number of seats. By using a smaller a/c, they satisfy some key customers as to frequency yet with a limited amount of seats, can keep up fare yields.

Overall, UA (former CO) is pretty bad with 50 seaters. IDK if they still do it but kind of ridiculous to run a 145 on ORF-IAH, which I had to endure in 2010.

This example isn't too bad IMO.

I don't understand, are you looking at just one day and making a blanket statement that this one day (Sunday?) represents something more?

Checking the UA schedules for EWR-MIA

FEB 24:
1 A320, 3 738, 2 739

MAR 14:
1 A320, 1 73G, 1 738, 1 752

APR 17:
3 738, 2 739

May 16:
1 A320, 1 73G, 3 739

All looks pretty solidly consistent to me, this has pretty much been the frequency and number of seats UA (and prior CO) have been running for nearly three decades. Longer than anyone else in the NYC-MIA market.

For instance the 1995 OAG, provided by departed flights.com, shows five daily CO flights EWR-MIA a mix of 727s and MD80s.

http://www.departedflights.com/EWR95p4.html

In 1989 it was 6 CO flights EWR-MIA:

Realistically, as long as UAs mainline fleet number stays about the same, no market is going to see much, if any, increase in mainline flying.

I believe that once the labor contracts get sorted out at UA, they can get back to the business of running and growing a single airline instead of having to outsource service to get around the labor issues.

No need for for the snarkiness. Especially when I could go "spelling police" on you.


My point remains the same: UA is now operating some of their flights EWR-MIA-EWR using RJs.

UA favors FLL in South Florida.

UA considers MIA to be not as important as FLL.

The RJs that UA now is flying on EWR-MIA-EWR may be an indicator of what's in store for the future on the route.

Why don't we pull our 47's out of SFO and just go big with them on EWR-MIA.

Afterall this industry is a big p***ing contest and we need to show everyone else we're big dogs on

It's not additional weekend capacity.

Friday, 2/28, UA EWR-MIA

3 x 738
1 x 320
1 x 739
1 x 73G

Saturday, 3/1

2 x 738
1 x 320
1 x 739
2 x E70

DL treats LGA-ORD as a business route, scheduling 14 x E75s (with a rich 12F 64Y ratio) to match frequency of AA and UA. Is that what UA is doing, dropping a 738 and a 73G for 2 x E70 on a Saturday? I don't think so...

Exactly. You're doing good to have that much mainline into a fortress hub such as MIA. (Being NYC-MIA)
makes that possible IMO.

Just how many loyal AA passengers do you think you're going to pull off of their planes ?

Plus NYC-MIA is more vacation and pleasure, not exactly ORD-NYC.

RE: It's Begun: UA Flying RJs EWR-MIA

UA 15x ORD-EWR 3/3

12 mainline, 3 RJ.

Because it IS a business route. F and E+ on all flights. I don't want to get off topic though.

Quoting N62NA (Reply 42):

So then if UA considers MIA to be less important than FLL, is it a surprise that they're putting large RJs on the route? They focus more on FLL and apparently do well with it so what is the problem?

From planespotters' point of view this is a good thing because there's more variety. From a passenger's point of view it's a good thing because UA is now flying more comfortable planes on the route. From UA's point of view, they are making a business decision that is financially responsible while keeping the frequenc that their passengers want.

So remind me again, what is so horrible about this? That the statement "UA is all mainline from EWR to MIA" isn't applicable anymore?
