GSO going all UX comes as no surprise. UA has reduced service to GSO by downgauging aircraft over the past several years where we were left with only 1 consistent mainline flight/day (ie the morning ORD flight). The late afternoon flight to ORD is hit or miss of either mainline or UX. Due to high fares (nearly 20-25% increase in the year BEFORE the spike in oil prices + the current increases) and dwindling capacity, it was inevitable that UA would downsize us again. Pax were driving to RDU or CLT for the lower fares, me included, but RDU has also suffered similar reductions in gauge. RDU discontinued its mainline RDU-DEN route and, from all appearances, looks to heading for all UX as well . I had 3 itins booked on the RDU-DEN for this fall and had to reroute on all of them.
