Saturday's are RJ days on most carriers which have access to them because there is less demand. The alternative is to cancel frequencies.

Unless OP is physically in BAL and it is inconvenient, UA would almost certainly rerouted him x DCA. If in WAS, it's 10 minutes to the airport and another 10 minutes to the gate with the same in reverse.

The change of operating carrier from mainline to Express justifies a cancellation and refund.

As others note, there's always WN.
