Hello everyone! United has just announced today that they will be starting a new route in December from EWR. Their new route will be Cape Town, South Africa! This flight will be around 14 1/2 hours to Cape Town and around 16 hours back. The route will be operated by a United 787-9 Dreamliner. I think this is a great way to expand their route network down into Africa. Also starting to compete with Delta on DL’s ATL-JNB route.
So now, what are your thoughts on this? Good or bad idea for United Airlines?
