fhanks! Sorry I didnt notice 3035 was a recovery HNL-SIN. What didnt fly was the 3xxx flight scheduled HNL-SFO today to bring 3968 back thus canceling UA1. (Though a bit surprised they didnt pick another flight to cancel instead)

Just saw UA30xx heading into EWR from MAD - auto-assumed something was up in recent days. And the recovery flight was late by hours.

Assume UA2 is a knock on of the windshield issue that caused UA1 to be cancelled on Friday night?

Correct, although the plane (N29968) returned to SFO on 2/10 at 7:10 PM, a few hours before UA1 was scheduled to depart. Now that plane is doing UA143 from DEN to NRT.

Feb 4th UA96 SFO-BNE cancelled and return UA97 on Feb 6th cancelled as a result

Regardless of what UA said, I noticed that J was 8/48 as of an hour before they cancelled it. It seemed like a total of roughly 25 seats (assuming that played a huge factor in the cancellation)

I don't disagree -- but according to all of the UA employees and experts here UA NEVER cancels a flight due to light loads -- I'm sure it was something else lol...

Is it possible to go back into the logs and see the reason UA listed it as cancelled?

Pretty sure it was due to really bad winds at SFO on Feb 4th: SFO is a mess 4 Feb 2024 - Travel Waiver

What a terrible day to even be outside.

Yeah... But other flights such as UA1, UA60, UA863 etc took off without cancellation (so was it really weather?)

UA2458 EWR-LAX delayed 5 hours due to a MX issue from an inbound LAS-EWR(super bowl special). The aircraft was axed for the flight and a replacement took over. $15 meal voucher. Last check the burgers at EWR were $25.

Maybe both? Weather caused reduced slots and if you have only a handful of customers that can potentially be re-routed, then youd cancel.

My brother is a retired DL 767 Captain. He said it was standard practice during IRROPS when you needed an airframe to cancel a flight with light loads and move it to a heavily booked flight.

Agree wtih the above. Super easy to re-route "25 people" on SFO-BNE to SYD or MEL and use Virgin Australia partnership to get them to BNE or their final destination (which may have been SYD or MEL in the first place).
