SFO-CHC

SFO28L Feb 5, 16 8:09 am

The recent (last 1-2 years) reduction in intra-Ca flights is due to the retirement of the emb 120 brasilia from SkyWest. Some of these flights were likely at-risk and just marketed as UAX.

My best guess is that they wanted the operational headache off their hands. Those flights were often full of passengers who were furious over ATC-related delays at SFO. And I guess that part's not about to change.

correct, the ones that were at risk were basically stopped, the ones that were not were moved to UAX CR200s. lots and lots of routes were cut, for me the most painful one was SMF-ACV. :( QX or PenAir are being discussed as possible replacements in these markets with service to PDX or SEA. for instance, PenAir recently started servicing Crescent City as a replacement to UAX's exit of the market.

speaking of intra-CA routes, I would like to see someone besides WN operate SMF-SAN. i prefer QX/AS, but UA might be a suitable substitute if they used a CR700 or E175.

i would also like to see LAX-IYK return, but that will not happen.

It'll never happen but SFO-KFS. I used to fly Horizon in from PDX, but that got axed. PenAir might start it up again from PDX.

I would really like this, as my grandmother lives in this area of CA and I would much rather do a short hop as opposed to driving 2.5-3 hours through the desert from LAX. The route has been gone for a while, though, and I don't think IYK is a public airport anymore.

Most of the routes I wish they flew are for selfish reasons.

STL-PHX (mainline or E75)
IAH-HKG
IAH-PEK (not AirChina)
IAH-ELD
Upgauge STL

PHX flights that accomodate regular business commuters. 9am is a joke. A permanent early morning IAH-PHX (7am or earlier, depending on daylight savings time) and a later Thursday flight would be nice.

What about BRU? Does SN even fly "inland" past NY or DC?

I understood you meant UA. I was asking about the feasibility of West Coast to BRU because I don't think even SN flies it.

ORD - TTN. Frontier is starting this up 4x weekly. United could put an RJ on this route with more trips and better scheduling.

TravelinSperry Feb 5, 16 11:14 pm

LAX - BKK. Won't happen. But I'd love it.

bajong Feb 6, 16 3:21 am

NRT-BKK...I wish they would bring back that route. I hate flying it in ANA with no upgrade.

Frontier has been serving TTN (Trenton Mercer County NJ - midway between PHL and EWR) for awhile now. I doubt United would start it up, though it would be good for me personally.

Any UA service to BKK. LAX, NRT, HKG...whatever.

I hate flying ANA with no E +, let alone no chance at an upgrade.

^^, as long as they are on 777s, not 787s.
