Thumbs down Non-Stop ORD - SJU Gone?

Am I going crazy or has United done away with the ORD - SJU non-stops?

Now instead of a 4-5 hour travel day, it turns into a minimum 8-9 hours, with even more chance of problems, both mx and weather related.

Anybody have any insight into this?

Frequency reduction?

Looks like it's down to Sat/Sun only for the nonstop ex-ORD.

Didn't you get the memo, the world now revolves around EWR and IAH!

So sad. Those flights were typically pretty full, most days of the week.

FLY AA

Plenty of options!!! AA has 2 or 3 a day to SJU!! I don't think SJU was ever daily? I remember always flying AA to SJU from ORD..

Is the triangle flight gone?? ORD-STT-SJU? Or was it the other way around?? I remember taking it once..

Of course, just because the flights are full, doesn't mean they're profitable.

I only flew ORD-SJU once, but it was for business and I bought my ticket three days in advance - it was still only around $200 one-way. Pretty cheap for such short notice.
11 of the 12 of us in F were 1Ks - this was a Monday morning in Sept.
