Why would UA (or any airline) offer a BE fare when there’s no low-cost nonstop competition on a route? If there’s no price shopping to be done, why not have economy as your lowest fare? Take IAD-CMH as a simple example. Seems like they’re giving money away. This assumes that a sizable portion of price-shoppers will still pay a premium for a nonstop.
