United Airlines suspending service at JFK Airport
United Airlines is temporarily halting service at New York’s JFK Airport, saying its schedule there is too small to remain competitive.
In a note shared with CNN Business, the airline said the start of the winter season, when more airlines resume flying to and from JFK, contributed to its “difficult decision.” “The significance of JFK to our operation hasn’t changed — we think New York customers deserve more choices, and robust United service to JFK is good for our customers, our employees and our airline,” United said in the letter. “As a result, we will continue our pursuit of a bigger and more desirable schedule for our customers and be ready to seize those opportunities if and when they surface.”
The suspension will begin October 29. United said it is “working with customers” who have tickets booked after that date.
