Purely anecdotal I know, but where is UA's much trumpeted (and investor frightening) growth. Overall UA schedule is mixed, with some increases (mainline) balanced by what appears to be a large increase in CR2 flying. Maybe its just IND, because June looks reduced there (by a lot on most routes compared to past years)
June 11th 2018
IND-ORD: 5x CR2, 2x E70, 1x E75
IND-DEN: 1x E70, 1x CR7, 1x 320 (Definitely down from 2017)
IND-IAH: 2x ERJ, 1x E70, 1x E75
IND-SFO: 1x 320, 1x 739 (actually very good!)
ABQ-DEN: 1x CR2, 1x CR7, 1x A319, 1x A320, 1x 73H
CLE-DEN: 1x CR7, 2x E70, 2x 73H
CLE-ORD: 2x ERJ, 1x CR2, 1x 73G, 5x 73H (almost like the schedule on any large city to ATL on DL....)
RDU-ORD: 1x CR7, 1x E70, 1x E75, 1x 73G, 1x 739 (more 737-700s than usual seem to be showing up in the timetable)
BNA-DEN in July with 3x daily service (all RJ with the last flight of the day at 2:45 PM!)
MEM-IAH: 1x ERJ, 1x CR7, 1x E75, 2x 739 (positive but doesn't hold a candle to DL's 10x daily M88 service the same day to ATL)
Actually, maybe its not that bad, but after studying DL's timetable for awhile, UA has pretty far to go to catch up;.
Can't wait for the CS100/E190 ( plus additional E175s) to come (assuming they ever do!!!)....
Just thought it would be good to summarize some schedules I thought notable, sorry that I can't do YOY comparisons, but just thought these were interesting.
From IND the only drops I see are from ORD, and slightly DEN, but later in the summer they are increasing mainline
IND-EWR is getting mainline in June and for part of Memorial Day weekend
IND-SFO is going B738+ B739 August 21st—>October 3rd and A320+739 June 6th-August 20th (Increase YOY)
IND-ORD is going 2x A319 August 21st—->October 3rd (Increase YOY)
IND-DEN is going 738 August 21st—->October 3rd
