Re: United at PVD - Service Level Desparity

It's weird to me that UA has dropped mainline service from ORD-PVD. Sure, AA entered the market relatively recently, but only with 2x daily E75s. UA's service to both IAD and EWR from PVD seems pretty reasonable to me, and I'm not surprised that there's no link to DEN or IAH as most of the other me...
