United: Europe Flight Cuts Are Coming In 1 Week

United writes that they are committing to maintaining their current flights to/from the US and Europe through March 19th.

Additionally, they have capped fares on flights from Europe to the US for people to fly back home.

United still isn’t sure which flights will operate, but there will be cuts. However they told me that, “We expect to fly daily to Zurich, Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam, Manchester and Edinburgh, maintain multiple flights to Frankfurt and Munich, and operate 18 daily flights to and from London, three to Dublin and less than daily service to Lisbon, all while continuing to monitor demand.”

That means that many United hubs will see massive reductions in flights to Europe as a daily flight will likely only operate from one hub. The exact routes are still being determined.

It also means that cities like Barcelona, Berlin, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, and Rome will be without United service for the foreseeable future.

“Continuing to monitor demand” is a key phrase, as that means United will cancel more flights if people aren’t buying tickets on the remaining flights. If you do fly to Europe you may just find that you don’t have a return flight home…

Have a united milage plus round trip ticket purchased in February for travel to Tel Aviv leaving end of March returning end of April. Want my miles back. Do I have to pay the $125 / ticket cancellation fee? Do you think they will drop the quarenteen by then.

I got a United flight on the 18th from NYC to London. I’d wished they cancelled it because I don’t want to fly these days.. Any Recommendations on how to get my Chase ultimate rewards refunded?

I thought of a plan.. To change my United flight from NYC to another country which still has flights but will likely get cancelled. Now Dan please give me the inside scoop of where you see flights currently running but will likely be cancelled. This way we can hopefully get a refund. Thank You!


Take whatever the amount you spent on the ticket to a casino and play black or red on the roulette wheel and maybe you’ll get your money back
