no doubt their schedule 4 months out is not reliable, so you will have to base it on what they have been operating. They have been operating 2 to 3 flights a day on that route for several months and it's all on mint.

No need to base anything on anything.

If one purchases B6 or UA today, it may turn out that the other carrier would have been better for any number of reasons sometime next year. Thus, wait until close in and then book. If for some reason the world opens up again, one can always reevaluate. Not as though there is a particular benefit to early booking these days.

Agree with this, I don't really see any reason to be booking more than a month out at this point. Pricing is certainly not any better and you're likely to have some kind of a schedule change no matter which airline you're flying.

The only reason I would do so would be booking very far out due to finding some kind of excellent deal (in the premium fare deals forum for example).
