Default United Announces New International And Domest

Thought this may be of interest to some.




CHICAGO, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced plans to launch year-round and seasonal service on several new international and domestic routes, including:
  • New daily trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic flights from San Francisco, United's largest Pacific gateway;
  • New flights from Chicago to points in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean;
  • New "Capital to Capital" service between Washington and San Salvador; and
  • Additional flights from Denver and Los Angeles.
United and its regional partners will operate these new routes with a mix of mainline and regional aircraft.
"These additional services underscore three commitments ­­ to fly where our customers want to fly, to introduce new flights where we can profitably do so, and to be the clear leader in service and choice in each of our hub cities," said Jim Compton, United's executive vice president and chief revenue officer.
The newly announced and previously launched services are consistent with United's previously announced 2012 capacity guidance.
Daily flights to Asia and Europe from San Francisco
United will begin daily year-round service between its hub at San Francisco International Airport and Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei on April 9, 2013, subject to government approval. The flights will operate using Boeing 777 aircraft with 269 seats eight in United Global First, 40 in United BusinessFirst, 104 in United Economy Plus, and 117 in United Economy.
The new San Francisco-Taipei flights will be available for booking once United receives government approval.
The airline will also begin daily year-round service between San Francisco and Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris on April 11, 2013, subject to government approval. The Paris flights will operate with Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 214 seats 30 in BusinessFirst, 49 in Economy Plus and 135 in economy.

I think this is great news. As long as this is really new flying and not simply a realignment of current aircraft. Its nice to hear of growth anyway. I suspect ORD to Bahamas/Thunder Bay/ Monterry would not have happened right away and this could help establish a market which could support a mainline aircraft.

Now how are your talks going, between you and management and between the two MECs? They are expanding and still suppressing their labor.

AA has tried via Eagle the ORD NAS and it never worked out to my understanding.

Half the flights are outsourced, not on United. Not great news, ok news maybe.

You guys are gonna have to learn that winning smaller battles are achievable instead of winning the War all at once. Cap the number of RJs and then get a hold of the majority of the flying with a ratio that favors YOU. Mainline will never capture all of the flying back when it can be done at half the costs and benefits.
