As we're in the middle of the Summer 2017 season, it's time to look to the Summer 2018 season. United Airlines is preparing its Summer '18 schedule, with some important changes filed.
Firstly, daily frequency drops from six flights a day to five flights a day. In the same stroke, the route will be served exculsively Boeing 767-300ER aircraft
The revised timetable looks like this:
Newark International Airport – London Heathrow
UA934 DEPART EWR 08:20 ARRIVE LHR 20:40
UA110 DEPART EWR 18:00 ARRIVE LHR 06:20+1
UA014 DEPART EWR 18:35 ARRIVE LHR 06:55+1
UA016 DEPART EWR 21:00 ARRIVE LHR 09:20+1
UA940 DEPART EWR 21:50 ARRIVE LHR 10:10+1
London Heathrow – Newark International Airport
UA883 DEPART LHR 08:40 ARRIVE EWR 11:35
UA015 DEPART LHR 10:05 ARRIVE EWR 13:10
UA017 DEPART LHR 12:20 ARRIVE EWR 15:25
UA941 DEPART LHR 16:00 ARRIVE EWR 19:10
UA921 DEPART LHR 18:00 ARRIVE EWR 21:05
Commences: 24th March 2018
Booked Equipment: Boeing 767-300ER
For those looking – flight pair UA077/076 will be suspended in the Summer 2018 season.
If you've been speculatively booking your flights from March 2018 onwards (or booking your redemptions in extremely early), now is a good time to check if your flight is operating or not, and obviously checking your seat reservations as equipment appears to have shifted onto a single type of airframe on this operation.
In total (based on a two-class layout of 204 seats in a Boeing 767-300ER), United Airlines will offer 1020 seats per day between Newark and London.
That's still a fair amount of seats to fill a day.
