    Just curious but I am wondering where the aircraft used for the PVG-SFO flight comes from? It seems all UA flights arrive mid-to-late afternoon (the inbound arrives around 5:30p) and while some depart in the mid-evening, the PVG-SFO goes off just past noon. It would appear that UA keeps the inbound SFO-PVG plane overnight, but that seems like pretty bad utilization if that's the case. Surely it would make more sense to depart mid-to-late evening? (Of course arriving back stateside would be late evening too, and thus make onward connections awkward.)
