United Airlines will withdraw in January from two Latin American and two European routes - Santiago, Caracas, Dusseldorf, and Milan. Its Latin retreat will save United an estimated $2.5 million over five years, and bring capacity on these routes more in line with demand. LanChile hopes to pick up nearly half of United's 16% Chile-USA market share. Aeropostal expects to boost its 35% share of the Venezuela-USA market. United is also moving its Buenos Aires route from Chicago to Washington and switching to smaller aircraft.
