a couple of things to consider:
1) the fewer flyers are not going to be spread across the same number of flights. UA will be significantly paring the schedule to get profitable loads.
2) on these reduced flights, Iím guessing one will see a higher fraction of elite flyers - itís what they do. Leisure travel Is likely to drop more as a percentage of passengers than business travel.
