Since intl July cuts were loaded the last weekend of May, perhaps we can expect August readjustments this Friday?

Any thoughts on when August international schedules will be finalized?

As mentioned July 2020 international schedule adjustments were posted the last weekend in May (31 May) and the domestic adjustments the first weekend in June (7 June). The "last weekend" has been a fairly regular UA pattern in recent months, but nothing is standard about these times.

Jut a word of caution that having flights listed in the flight schedule does not mean you can get on the flight. Check travel and entry restrictions of the destination country before you check the flight schedule.

01 September? Until then, anything can happen on any given day.

Does anyone know when United updates its schedules for booking? I seem to recall it was Saturdays, but can't seem to find a reference to that when I do a search.

I have a flight booked on a Monday in late August, SFO-PVG (one that was re-booked from June). I was able to rebook and choose my date because my original flight was cancelled. I'm assuming that, similarly, I can't just change to a Wednesday or Saturday flight at the moment until my current flight is officially cancelled, and right now it's still showing confirmed. Also, the flights even on Wednesdays and Saturdays that I see in the schedule for September show operating with 789, when it appears they should be operating with 77W, so it looks like the schedule hasn't been updated yet.

Friday evening / Saturday morning Chicago time -- with straggling issues taking a bit longer

However, major schedule changes are generally just once a month and the last major international schedule change was 6 June. So there may be some changes this weekend but others may come later. With next weekend a major USA holiday, that might change the update dates -- we should know more in 12-24 hours.

Change fees are presently waived until 30 June (which may or may not be extended this weekend) for flights anytime in 2020.

I think August has been updated as ORD-AMS has been removed but picks up in September.

China flights are all dailies in August, therefore my expert conclusion is: August hasnt been fixed yet.

Sofar, numerous EU flights, EWR-ZRH, SFO-ZRH, SFO-FRA 2x among others, still showing for mid-August.
It looks like TATL adjustments/trimming for August still to come.

Minimal changes for UA this weekend. AS and B6 did their August schedule updates this weekend. AA and UA still have yet to update very much for August. DL loaded a number of September reductions and some additional August tweaking, but I'm not convinced they are done with September quite yet (they already loaded August a few weeks ago).
