Has UA cancelled China flights yet? Between. HKG and China, lot of open trans pacific capacity. Lots of people flying to Thailand, Australia et al would connect there.

Yes. And they added 4 daily flights to TLV, with wide open I class on all dates.

Can new routes be launched that quickly? This grounding could potentially be very temporary if a flu vaccine is developed or transmissions slow down.
Yes. Just watched a short United video describing exactly this process.

BA have already launched temporary additional flights to CPT, MIA and SEA for the coming months.
They've also released a lot of Avios availability supposedly to get more revenue to make up for what they've lost due to those cancelled routes.

Hmmm, sorry don't have the link. I was on a United flight and it was 1 of the options available to watch. Try taking a United flight if you get really desperate  ;)

UA still couldn't figure out how to price Premium somewhat between Economy & Business?

Look like all UA flights to TLV are 777s.
