But why would UA use a 789
Because they can. There is sufficient demand on these hub to hub routes.
Ok that is ridiculous. back on topic
Ah United! Flew them to Vegas about 3 months ago and enjoyed (most) of my experience. On par with Delta, at least domestically. But then: about a week ago, I booked ACA to Phoenix via SFO, the second leg on United. First leg on the ACA Dreamliner. It was gonna be my first flight on a dreamliner ever since VS moved all the dreamliners off the NYC route (booked that one too about 5 months earlier, but they moved the planes around 15 hours after booking so I cancelled). Booked, all was going well until 2 days later where expedia told us our ticket wasn’t accepted. Called United, they said we ‘didn’t pay enough for the ticket’. It was extra 600 a person. So we cancelled that and the dreamliner will have to wait :(. I don’t hate them but I was pretty frustrated.
What is vs and aca mean
virgin atlantic and air canada
This is an example of what I was saying :)
What was the purpose of this trip? It seems as if you did DEN-SFO-SEA-DEN in one day.
All within 24 hours my bud. Got up at 4 am and got home at 11 PM
That’s not really true in itself. The 789 on DEN-SFO is a one-off. It may be operated daily but there are like 7-8 other daily departures on narrowbody aircraft. Using a 789 doesn’t affect demand.

So you just stayed in the airport the whole time?
No, they run widebody flights as a way to reposition planes from hub to hub. Ex: CLT-PHL has 3 A332 flights for that purpose. Of course, you’ll see some used for a non spoke route to increase utilization in areas with higher demand.
Example, tropical places tend to see more capacity in the winter than summer…CLT-CUN gets an A333 in the winter compared to the summer its on an A321.
You think what Robert did was crazy? Check out some of the travelers on IG…

That’s why you should NEVER fly United.
I don’t know how you and Baboonboy manage to be in love with Frontier, but as long as you’re not flying WeHaveNoSpirit Airlines, I guess it’s ok.
@Joe would be proud.
But Frontier is a descent airline with great fares and destinations. You get what you pay for “No Thrills”
Air New Zealand use 787-9 , 777-300ER and 777-200ER on multiple under 4 hour flights
And who do you fly? lol
