    Going to add load to the UA IAD-DXB route. From my perspective the good chance of the upgrade is only reason to fly that route on UA. The additional connection to west coast is soul destroying after a long flight. May mean for me that I also take the direct route in ME carriers. Not whining at UA here, as I am sure they will rejoice at reduced DL competition, but noting an impact to me.

    Personally, I blame Jennifer Anniston…

    While I agree with you overall that is the route which is causing US carriers pain, I question whether the ME3 are carrying passengers from US to Asia. India is probably the furthest easy that really makes sense. From South east Asia and further east, it makes no sense to fly via the middle east. Much shorter, faster and generally cheaper to fly over the Pacific. No?
