UA - ORD-EWR / EWR-ORD - $303+ - Business (Widebody Day)

I will preface this thread by saying that this is all about flying widebody aircraft domestically in the US and nothing here is actually a great deal. Welcome to Disneyland!

United doesn't fly widebody aircraft between Chicago (ORD) and Newark (EWR) like they used to. In fact, at the moment the only date with a widebody aircraft on the schedule is March 31.

If you'd to fly a widebody domestically between EWR and ORD, here's your chance!

At 7:10AM UA563 will depart ORD for EWR on March 31, 2024 operated by a Boeing 767-300 with Polaris seats.

A one-way ticket is $368, but you can save a few dollars by buying a ticket to BOS with a connection at EWR for $303 one-way


At 10:45AM United will brush some cobwebs off an old Boeing 777-200 and a piece of nostalgia will take to the sky over ORD headed toward EWR. You can "enjoy" 8-across business class on this old bird!

A one-way ticket is $498, but you can save a few dollars by again buying a ticket to BOS for $303 one-way.


Finally, at 5:00PM a Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner will ascend from EWR for ORD.

A one-way ticket is a whopping $855, but you can save by buying a ticket to DTW with a connection at ORD for $448 one-way.


If you want to fly roundtrip, it'll cost a staggering $988 (68.71 cpm - ouch!). You can save a few dollars by buying a ticket from ORD to EWR to ORD to DTW for $811 (a slightly more palatable 41.85 cpm)

I don't condone hidden city / point ticketing, nor am I trying to imply you should, but you can probably buy a one-way economy ticket back to the starting point for less than you're saving by buying a ticket with a connection and you'll receive the extra segment / miles!

3/31 is the cutover from the winter to summer scheduling season in IATA terms and likely the start date for some seasonal TATL routes or upgauges, hence the shuffling of widebodies around the UA network.
