UA's route maps
I'm playing around with the interactive route maps on United's website. What a fun toy! But also, I have a puzzle. I have a trip planned next week that is a direct, nonstop flight from IAD to LAS. According to the route map there are no direct flights between any of the Washington airports and Vegas. So how is this a valid route on the ticket I bought? Here is the flight number: UA796 and you can look it up for either date: 7/21/2013 or 7/28/2013 because they come up the same.

Is it really on UA metal or is it US Air? Either that or the route map is not up to date.

US has one daily DCA-LAS nonstop flight (beyond perimeter exception flight).

You're surprised and confused UA.sux is inconsistent?

UA 769 is once daily per Flight aware history

Most definitely United, not US Airways.

This level of detail in flight travel is new to me. I would think the route maps would be accurate, but... maybe I'm too much of an idealist. :D

The UA route maps, both standard and the interactive are out of date and bad products. Don't rely on them. You have a ticket - you're fine.

Clearly that map is wrong.

UA flies IAD-LAS 2x on 7/21/13 non-stop. UA769 at 828am and UA469 at 814pm.

Thanks everyone. As I said, I was just playing with the interactive route map because I just found out about it. I'm not worried about my trip at all.
