Yep - DL's JFK-NCE uses a 767, currently. EK uses an A380!

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.
My pipe dream for work is SFO-MXP

It has a 9700ft runway, that should be sufficient, no?

It would be cool! Just didnít bank on it as Iíd think yields would be too low for UA. So Iíd expect the smallest possible a/c, what 787-8?

UA used to have BHX and cancelled it. With HAM and STR previously being tried, I doubt DUS or STR. Russian economy is too poor for DME or LED. I could see LYS and HEL as a longshot.

I would think ORD may get WAW or PRG

LOT already flies WAW-ORD. PRG, though...

How is SFO-Tahiti doing? Could Fiji be another 788 option? (I forget the airport codes.)

If it's DEN-AMS this would be wicked. Though For me and my family's purposes, it wouldn't work as well as a DL or KL routing. It'd still be great, though!

I don't suppose this would be in the cards, but DEN-ICN/AKL/SYD would be absolutely lovely.

Wrong! I don't want wait forever! All I want to fly IAD-BSL or ORD-BSL by operated A321XLR aircraft. Please United!!! Come on United!

Only reason I could see UA start SYD is to put pressure on the new AA/QF JV, if they have IAH and DEN then they can steal some of the connecting traffic through DFW, LAX, and SFO that QF/AA would get

For this to happen, UA would have either to buy another LHR slot (I can't see that happening, unless LH or another partner is selling), or drop another frequency.

UA seems to be only balancing traffic, not adding traffic for AU/NZ. I doubt they would put some into DEN just to borrow from IAH/SFO/LAX.
