IMO, that would be FABULOUS! I hate the drive/ride getting from Loveland to the DIA campus and then the hassle of getting through security and on to Concourse B. Oh well, maybe someday someone other than Allegient will fly from FNL.

Newark-Budapest
Newark-Seville
Newark-Warsaw
Newark-Georgetown, Guyana
Newark-Copenhagen (reinstate summer seasonal)

That's all I've got for guesses.

Guesses:
EWR: Seasonal summer service to 2/3 of the following: CPH, OSL, VIE, HEL, MGA, WAW, HAM, DUS, BUD, NCE, OTP, STR, BSL, or DBV. If they're really feeling ambitious, a year round flight to either TPE, ICN, BLR, HYD, CCU, or MAA.
ORD: Seasonal BCN or KEF service seems plausible, although TLV has been long rumored as well.
SFO: Given the announcement date, anything South Pacific seems unlikely. Elsewhere in Asia, I don't see anything in China and PUS/MNL/BKK/SGN/HAN are possibilities but unlikely. Seasonal BRU or DUB perhaps?
DEN: The airport really wants a China flight and is offering incentives, so perhaps PVG. However, given the recent European success, I could see LHR going year round or a seasonal CDG flight.

I would think something like ORD-GVA would come about 100 years before EWR/IAD-BSL. All the pharma execs in the world won't get you EWR/IAD-BSL...

If they do launch SFO-BKK, I think the entire UA forum will be down for hours due to the traffic

In a similar boat, UA could really corner the South Denver traffic market with APA flights

For DEN, I could definitely see UA making the LHR flight year round. However UA does say 'New Routes' so let's hope it is actually new, below are my guesses in order of likelihood, my assumption is that it is a TATL flight to a Star Alliance hub for connecting traffic:
1. DEN-MUC (UA has had great success with the FRA flight, basically full every day, would be a nice compliment to the daily 359 on LH and also make sense due to the LH build up at MUC)
2. DEN-ZRH (See reasons above but for LX connections, I also understand WK has had good success on their DEN-ZRH flight)
T-3. DEN-AMS (a mechanic told me he has heard rumors of this and he was correct before LHR was announced)
T-3. DEN-EZE (same rumor as AMS )
5. DEN-PEK (New airport in PEK may give more slots and this allows Air China connections)
6. DEN-DUB (seasonal, due to number of tourists to Ireland)
7. DEN-PTY (as UA has now twice announced this as a new route, so third time is a charm)
​​​​​8. DEN-CDG (I don't think this will happen as UA has been focusing on growing to Star Alliance hubs from DEN but could decide to give DY a run for their money)
9. DEN-PVG
10. DEN-HKG
11. DEN-YMM (or basically any other airport in Canada with a 50 seat RJ, as UA has announced new Intl route before for it to be an RJ to Canada)

​​​​​I would love a DEN-AKL/SYD flight but I doubt this will ever happen.

Wait you mean LNK-PRG isn't going to happen?

Although that might be an easy route to GPU on, I would prefer LNK-PVG.

I think UAís strategy is to expand the most exEWR or exSFO. So - what hasnít been mentioned - unless I missed it:

EWR-DUS
EWR-STR
EWR-CGN
EWR-DME
EWR-LED
EWR-OTP
EWR-HEL
EWR-LYS
EWR-BHX

Out of SFO, canít think of any not already mentioned. Could maybe see an ORD-PRG or ORD-DUS.

I'd like to see EWR-IST too.
Can something big land in NCE, though?
