UA flights are empty because people are flying on AA instead! Loads to/from LHR have been pretty high on AA this past week, especially in premium class cabin. I believe there is a separate thread about UA losing its premium passengers to the competition.

AA seems to better manage their flights during the winter season to/from LHR as they have a revenue-sharing relationship with BA on flights to/from LHR and will reduce capacity during the winter season, rather than fly empty.
