Breaking: United Airlines Plans Return to JFK Airport

by Zoe

United Airlines is planning to resume service at JFK International Airport in 2021 according to CNBC.  That would mark the airline’s return to the airport after previously ending service in October 2015.

The early plans are a bet that the pandemic’s lull in air travel could help United end its five-year absence from what is normally one of the country’s most congested airports. Service could start early next year but a firm timeline hasn’t been finalized. It isn’t yet clear whether regulators will grant United space at the tightly controlled airport.

CEO Scott Kirby has continuously stated that leaving JFK was a mistake.

How do they get landing slots? They’ve gotten a lot of government cash but so have other airlines who might be reluctant to sell.

Ha, this is priceless! UA will squander precious resources and won’t do any good. At least it’ll get us upgrade chances on flights empty of connecting traffic…
