I do not believe there are any airports served only by UA there are several served solely by one of the UX carriers. I think a dozen or so in Texas alone.

I think Telluride is only private flights and Great Lakes Aviation (which you tag on from DEN with UA, US & Frontier).

SHD has only UX, although they will soon have only 3M, since 3M is disafilliating with UX on that route.

Many of these are EAS (Essential Air Service) markets subsidized by the Federal government.

Since service is dependent on the subsidy, there is no competition.

One of these markets I have fly into is PQI in northern Maine, currently served by PenAir of Alaska (although the fleet and crews are unchanged since this service was provided by US Airways Express).

A handful of years ago EAU used to have service from nearby CWA, on a UA code operated by UX probably. It was the shortest domestic route I had seen on the gate departure board that year, although I'm not sure who would fly that and what the TSA arrangements were for passenger screening for that flight.

Like Yap? Chuuk, etc?

There's a handy table at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_Air_Service that you can sort by operating airline.

Not all single-airline airports are part of the EAS program.

STC = St Cloud, MN. It used to have NW, and perhaps DL after GE merger for a bit, commuter service to MSP, but that was dropped a while ago. More recently UA has given them scheduled service again, to/from ORD of course.
