United leaves Alaska

Troubled United Airlines announced today that it will halt flying to Anchorage, Alaska beginning Sept. 21.

The Chicago-based carrier is trimming its schedule to eliminate unprofitable routes as it struggles with high fuel costs.

United connected its Denver hub with Anchorage.

The move is good news for SeaTac’s Alaska Airlines, the dominant carrier to Anchorage. Alaska flies to Anchorage from Sea-Tac, Vancouver, San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago as well as from Hawaii.
