I don't think you can use an ETC to connect through Athens for a Greek island. Aren't ETCs only usable for UA-coded flights?

But isnít that different than what the passenger thinks he or she is buying? If the airline knows with almost certainty they arenít going to operate that flight and, instead, force their perhaps...

The US government is paying the crew costs through September. UA is betting nothing by scheduling these flights.

Turning a day trip via flying into a two or three day trip driving isn't all that appealing in many circumstances. That's one scenario. Here's another:

At some point, UA has to start adding flights and not simply rely on up-gauging to provide capacity. No airline is going to keep it's regular customers by flying only 10% of its planned schedule, no...

Countering the middle seat blocking is their costs per seat-mile have to be as low as they've been in a very long time. Fuel is a bargain (though going up somewhat) and the crews are paid for by the...

The post you're "quoting" (I use the term loosely as you deliberately truncated it) was about Smisek, not Munoz. When you resort to that, it basically means you don't have an argument.
