UA is not weighing the pros and cons. They are terminating the contract ...

that is rather shady. Are you seeing anything in the contract that gives UA an out?

Force majeure is defined as "any cause or event that is beyond the reasonable control of UCLA and renders the performance of the agreement by the affected party either impossible or impracticable. While the definition does not specifically include epidemics nor pandemics (and it should be assumed that these types of contracts will in the future), a persuasive argument can be made that COVID-19 made it, at a minimum, impracticable for UCLA to perform."

Let's not forget UA was in financial trouble before the pandemic. To not be skeptical of UA's actions would be irresponsible.

That said, it would behoove UCLA and Cal to work with UA ... which is what I originally said. However, they are in no obligation to do so.

Here is the contract.
