United Flies Dulles to Beijing

United won tentative approval today to fly direct to Beijing from Washington Dulles. I’m not exactly sure why it’s a competition that only one airline can win a direct route to Beijing from Dulles, but there were a couple of other airlines who apparently didn’t bribe enough government officials as part of the process.

My heart goes out to them, today, as it appears they got totally boned on a route that’s only going to make United a shitpile of money over the next few years.
