    Does the LH stake in JetBlue has anything to do with this? Theoretically LH could drive some of their premium connecting pax to JetBlue which would impact United, but I don’t think that’s something they’d want considering LH and UA are part of the same alliance.

    Either way I think they’re just looking ahead and betting on economic recovery. With all the mergers and capacity reduction over the last few years as the economy improves they should be able to get enough premium pax.
