United Airlines has announced that they will be increasing their service between San Francisco and 18 destinations within the United States and Canada later this year. United continues to try to turn the spotlight away from Dr. Dao being dragged off of a Kentucky-bound United Airlines flight

Per United,

United Airlines announced it is increasing the number of flights between SFO and eight destinations. Additionally, the airline announced it will convert select regional jet flights to larger mainline aircraft in ten markets. These schedule enhancements build on previously announced new service from SFO to seven U.S. cities beginning June 8. 

United will be increasing their service from San Francisco to the following destinations: 

  • SFO – Seattle (SEA) increasing to 10 daily flights
  • SFO – Albuquerque (ABQ) increasing to 2 daily flights
  • SFO – Baltimore (BWI) increasing to 2 daily flights
  • SFO – Indianapolis (IND) increasing to 2 daily flights
  • SFO – Kansas City (MCI) increasing to 3 daily flights
  • SFO – Nashville (BNA) increasing to 2 daily flights
  • SFO – Philadelphia (PHL) increasing to 3 daily flights
  • SFO – Portland (PDX) increasing to 9 daily flights

Additionally, the airline will offer larger aircrafts on the following routes:

  • SFO – Burbank (BUR) using a B737 aircraft
  • SFO – Calgary, AB (YYC) using a A320 aircraft
  • SFO – Dallas (DFW) using a A320 aircraft
  • SFO – Kansas City (MCI) using a A320 aircraft
  • SFO – Minneapolis (MSP) using a A320 aircraft
  • SFO – Palm Springs (PSP) using a B737 aircraft
  • SFO – Santa Barbara (SBA) using a A319 aircraft
  • SFO – Bozeman (BZN) using a A320 aircraft
  • SFO – Sacramento (SMF) using a B737 aircraft
  • SFO – Fresno (FAT) using a B737 aircraft

Service to Bozeman, MontanaKansas City, Missouri; and Calgary, Alberta, are seasonal mainline flights for the summer.

With the Alaska/Virgin America merger in full effect, United is trying to remain competitive in the marketplace, so I’m pleased to hear about these new flight options as well that they’ll be increasing to mainline service on many routes, both a win for customers.
