United Airlines will add 10 new routes, further increasing the world's largest airline's reach and dominance. In adding the routes, a United statement read: United will expand destinations from west coast hubs "to be the clear leader in service and choice in each of our hub cities." It also said passenger demand is increasing for these and other routes and United is moving to fill that need.
