And all of it better served by Amtrak. I'd say less than 5% of the people I know with regular business travel between DC and NY prefer to fly.

The Argyle Pinot is quite drinkable at ground level. Iíll be curious about it in the air.

Any ideas when this is going to be loaded in the schedule? Points Guy said next spring, but as far as out as I can book I only see 8x mostly ERJ 145s.

No word on when the schedule will load into the systems for sale, and the company declined to detail where the additional slots are coming from when I asked. But UA did confirm to me that the new flight schedule will operate effective 29 March 2020.

well, we know how delta is welcoming UAís arrival into the shuttle market : 20% freq collapse YoY

So if this stays while UA actually keeps up with their 13x promise, then UA is +62.5% more frequent on their core shuttles (everyone has their weird LGA-IAD or JFK-BWI so letís just skip those)

(the way to read these A.net figures is prev sked > revised sked [sked of same month last year] )

Still not loaded into schedule (DCA shuttle upgauge). I've been booking quite a few international connections via EWR (in paid J) over the last few weeks for travel next year. Can I safely assume that once the equipment swaps are loaded I can call and be placed in the forward cabin without a fee? I feel like I've had this happened a few times on trips I've booked in the same scenario, but can't remember.

it sort of depends (on the fare construction and agent), see
Booked business fare, connection was 1-class Y, now 2-class, shouldn't I be put in F?
