United to Change Scheduling Ops – “DL running very good airline…we want to equal that”

United says it will utilize new technology to change how it schedules flights in order to improve delays and cancellations and to hopefully close the gap with Delta . As per Yahoo News / Reuters

United says they will also begin using new technology that was trialed this spring which helps agents determine whether to hold a plane for passengers with tight connections.
