Hopefully they refurbish the aircraft and look nothing like the international 757's from AA. They are embarrassing.

Seems like UA keeps cutting frequencies all over the board. No more IAD-GUA apparently and it's interesting to see how many destinations go down to only 3 daily IAH flights.

Interesting to see that JAX, MCI and ORF have limited connections from BOS. No European flights connect to any of these.

Also interesting to note that this is the second hub invasion from DL. First it was SEA, now it's Boston; funny to note each city is at opposite corners of the country.
