UA publishes a schedule for 330 days in advance (called Beginning of Schedule) and in the past would make tweaks quarterly and things would be fairly settles 3-4 months out. Updates would occur Friday evening / Saturday morning (Chicago time). Routine additions could occur anytime.

Present updates are every Friday and sometimes mid-week usually focused on the next month and farther out.

However, during the COVID era, UA has gone to a more dynamic and shorter-term setting of schedule (as has the other carriers). Presently UA, while UA is still publishing a schedule for 330 days in advance it reflects pre-COVID operational levels and is considered just a placeholder schedule. Then 3-5 weeks prior to a month, UA makes a major update of that month's schedule.

Examples (Major updates)
The October 2020 schedule was updated 4-5 September 2020
The November 2020 schedule was updated 2-3 October 2020
The December 2020 schedule was updated 30-31 October 2020
Holidays can move the major date a week earlier or later.
Weekly updates are still generally done over night Friday-Saturday (Chicago)

UA does not publish a summary of most schedule changes but a variety of sources below do and summaries / links of those sources can be found in this thread & wiki.

Always crosscheck with UA's Travel Notices , Coronavirus (COVID-19) travel waivers and information, as the situation is dynamic

I think they just (like a day or two ago) changed it back into a 777-200 for January.. also looks the same for March. Here's hoping it doesn't get downgraded! Plenty of R space in January it appears (:

UA38 Jan 6th HND-LAX is gone. I can't find it for several other travel days, so if you are on HND-LAX, check your flight status.
Changed to UA 876 HND-SFO and UA 552 SFO-LAX.

The international leg is packed with no seat availability in any cabin except business class.

Not really surprised - Not many Japanese traveling to the US - Hawaii has been averaging 1/5 Japanese tourists than the pre-covid numbers. The Yen has very slightly improved, but at 140 Yen to the Dollar, the Japanese are better off going to Europe, Australia, or other places in Asia than the US.

Very excited that a daily 777 with Polaris seats will be operating SFO-MCO-SFO over the Christmas holiday period instead of the usual 737s.
