UNITED Seeks Delay of San Francisco – Shanghai 2nd Daily Launch to July 2015

Due to slot issues at Shanghai Pu Dong Airport, UNITED has closed reservation for planned 2nd daily San Francisco – Shanghai Pu Dong flight, for travel between 06MAY15 and 01JUL15 (SFO departure). Currently UA891/890 is now scheduled to begin from 02JUL15, while an application to the US Department of Transportation has been submitted, seeking approval to extend the flight launch by additional 60 days to 15JUL15, as it needs more time to negotiate with Chinese authority.
