Re: UA Adds More out of DEN: FAI, CHS, ACV (ACV already mentioned)

FAI isn't an "add". This is a seasonal flight resuming. Well, to be fair, they're calling it an "add" - They haven't flown DEN-FAI in several years. F9 used to do it as well, but both ended years back. My mistake, I thought they dropped ORD and kept DEN. I guess it was the other...
