Re: United Airlines Network Thread 2018

The cuts I saw past April were not on a single route, but generically seemed to effect all the routes I looked at. IND-DEN for example is 2x E75, 1x 319 this summer as opposed to 1x E75, 1x 319, 1x 73H (if I remember it correctly, last summer) Many routes served on mainline last summer out of DEN, ...

Re: LATAM ending IAD service

Also, I wonder if UA would start IAD-LIM in the future... It seems like a 752 might be the right aircraft for the route, and if UA were to codeshare with Avianca Peru on the LIM end, they could provide a decent number of unique South America connections and get feed on both ends of the route.

It's too bad to see this route dropped. There are still ample connections from WAS to deep South America, though. AA through MIA, CM through PTY, AV through BOG, DL through ATL. Maybe even some out-of-the box options like DCA-MCO/FLL-Brazil on B6+AD.
