United Airlines halts flights at JFK
« on: October 04, 2022, 08:50:15 AM »
I had posted this news a while back, now it's official

After weeks of speculation, United Airlines has decided to temporarily suspend its services at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. The move comes after the airline said its flight schedule "is too small to remain competitive," especially heading into the winter, CNN reports. Negotiations with the Federal Aviation Administration to get additional slots are ongoing, but United says change won't happen overnight. “We will follow our fair and well-established process to award future slots," the FAA said in response.
The temporary suspension will start October 29th, and United says it will work with those who purchased tickets anytime after then.

United Airlines expressed concerns about its flight schedule being too small to remain competitive, particularly as winter approaches. The airline is currently engaged in negotiations with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to acquire additional slots at the airport. However, both United Airlines and the FAA acknowledge that this process will take some time.

The temporary suspension of flights at JFK is scheduled to commence on October 29th. United Airlines has assured its customers that it will work closely with those who have purchased tickets for travel after this date to provide alternative arrangements. The airline remains committed to serving its passengers and intends to follow the established procedure for future slot allocations, as stated by the FAA.

While this news may cause some inconvenience for travelers, it is important to note that United Airlines is taking these measures to ensure its long-term competitiveness and provide an improved travel experience. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates as more information becomes available.

Safe travels,
