Unfortunately I don't think UA management makes route decisions based off of petitions - except perhaps those that include substantive subsidies or financial guarantees.

Long thread on that topic at http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...th-africa.html :)

another (meaningless) vote for EWR-SLC

IAD-PVR! They have flights from every other hub (SFO/DEN/IAH/ORD/EWR), but no IAD, and the timing of the IAH/ORD/EWR flights don't line up with reasonable connections to IAD/DCA.

If FAR Airport and Microsoft! can't get DL or AS interested in SEA/FAR with a $500K grant, doubtful an online petition can get UA interested in anything :D

XXX-ZRH/FRA/MUC/IST-JNB should have you covered. Connecting in ZRH is a lot more pleasant than at EWR.

The press release for SFO-TLV explicitly referenced the sfotlv.org petition: http://newsroom.united.com/2015-10-0...Make-it-Better

That'll work. SFO-BKK, SFO-MNL, SFO-NAN, SFO-PPT, SFO-SJU, SFO-NAS, LAX-NAS, FLL-LAX, FLL-PHX, FLL-HNL, PHX-HNL.

SFO-MIA

It's ridiculous that there is no west coast to MIA.

Perhaps it is a suggestion that the demand isn't there for SFO-FLL? (I have no idea, pure speculation on my part)

SFO-MNL would be great! LAX-MNL would work as well.

There are actually multiple carriers, including UA, on SFO-FLL.

SFO-MIA is not served by UA (except as a through flight such as SFO-IAH-MIA) but AA does offer this segment.
