Although these routes will operate briefly, it’s nice to see United experiment with more point to point routes.

I know all of the airport codes! Can I share what they are?

Yea, go ahead, or you can mark them as spoilers. Up to you.

If I’m not wrong, does this mean that airports like Auckland (AKL), Tampa (TPA), and Manhattan (MHK) are options?

How disappointing ☹️

Indeed it is 😔

Dang…

Hoping they pull something surprising, like Boston to Florida.

Pittsburg to Orlando is one of my guesses.

Boston to Tampa stands out to me as a possibility

I’m putting my bets on Cleveland to Tampa and Boston to Orlando.

I’d be down, but I doubt it, highly doubt it. They have at most a daily A319 between here and Miami. I know Miami and Orlando are very different cities, but my point is more that our Florida flights are pretty locked down with southwest, and a whole host of flights from Spirit, Allegiant, and soon JetBlue is jumping in on this. AA hasn’t made much of an effort to break into that despite all but owning Miami. It doesn’t really make sense imo, but I’d love to be proven wrong.

I feel like that Buffalo will get new routes

Can’t forget Frontier either.


MCO is so strange as I’m sure traffic in and out of here have major influence from Disney and Universal, and the admission prices of the two. No wonder LCCs have control of the airport.

However, I would love to see United open up routes here!

The ones that i found (will be edited)
MCO, BOS, IAH, BCN,ORD,CM

I think Orlando-Boston is a possibility.
