Re: United Airlines Network Thread 2018

Any thing to the rumor that UA is looking to start ORD-MAN next spring? I've heard nothing and suspect it is too late for anything like that to be launched for S19. UA may have an interesting time ahead at MAN. They have applied for a B763 on EWR-MAN, but Ivee heard nothing further on implementing ...

Re: No flights from SFO/SJC/SEA/PDX to all of South America? And just 1 to Central America?

It's not just the local traffic component. There is almost zero logical flow traffic via LAX or SFO. SEA? Shorter over IAH. PDX? SAN? SLC? LAS? YVR? All shorter over IAH.

There is virtually no major demand set for whom it would be better to fly over LAX or SFO to SAM.

So looks like LAX and DEN will be year round while SFO will remain seasonal.

On UA.com DEN ends on March 30th which pretty much aligns with it being seasonal for the ski season.
