List of cities cut from United's Cleveland service
The document shows the following destinations as retaining nonstop service out of Cleveland: Albany, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago O'Hare, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York-LaGuardia, Newark, Orlando, San Francisco, St. Louis, Tampa, Washington-Dulles and Washington-Reagan.
In addition, it says that United will fly seasonal nonstops to Charleston, Cancun, Nassau and San Juan.
The fact sheet says United currently has 199 departures on its busiest or peak days, a number that will drop to 72 peak-day departures by the summer, a 64 percent decline. More small planes than mainline jets are being taken out, so the percentage decline in peak-day seats will be smaller, a 51 percent drop, from 12,284 to 6,121 seats.
More than three dozen routes will be phased out as United begins reducing flying in the spring. Most of them will remain attached to other United hubs, and will continue to be part of the airline's overall network and available to Cleveland travelers on a connecting basis.
Those cities are Atlanta, Austin, Bradford, Pa., Buffalo, Burlington, Charlotte, Columbus, Dayton, Dubois, Pa., Erie, Flint, Franklin, Pa., Grand Rapids, Greenville/Spartanburg, Harrisburg, Hartford, Indianapolis, Jamestown, Kansas City, Louisville, Madison, Wis., Manchester, N.H., Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul. Montreal, Nashville, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Parkersburg, W.Va., Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Me., Providence, Raleigh/Durham, Richmond, Rochester, Syracuse and Toronto.
