The company's CEO Jeff Smisek says in a letter to employees that the Cleveland hub has not been profitable in over a decade and has lost the company tens of millions of dollars in recent years.

Perhaps Allegiant Airlines will add their branded of "scheduled" service to CLE!
Maybe you will get there tomorrow or maybe in two weeks!

A byproduct of airline mergers.

I was always a very good customer of Continental and then thought that United would only improve my loyalty. How disappointing that this merger is flushing this airline down the craper.
United claims that leaving Cleveland as a hub was due to a lack of revenue. I would tell them that their lack of business is due to poor leadership. Every time I have tried to make a reservation on my airline of choice they would either have the worst connections and the worst airfares. Even when I wanted to use them they made it almost impossible to work with.
Now that they are deserting Cleveland there will be even less chance that they will get my business. Keep up the trend United and you will go the way of TWO and Eastern.

Im hoping we go the way of Delta who closed TWO small hubs (CVG and MEM) and are cutting back a third (SLC). Hubs that rely on 50 seat jets are just not profitable and the assets can be place where they are most productive.

Closing CLE should not be---UNITED should upgrade flightsand more than that SERVICE! Dropping perks to frequent flyers does not attract more customers,,,,closing The UNITED CLUB in Cleveland in June will not help ELITE customers,,,works the other way
