United boost­ing Au­gust Sched­ule

Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS -

United Air­lines said Wed­nes­day that it will add more flights in Au­gust and op­er­ate about 40% of the sched­ule it flew in the prior-year pe­riod. That’s up from 30% in July and 15% in June.

CEO Scott Kirby told The As­so­ci­ated Press that de­mand is ris­ing among peo­ple want­ing to visit fam­ily, friends, beaches and moun­tains. But typ­i­cal tourist des­ti­na­tions such as Las Ve­gas and Or­lando are still lag­ging, and busi­ness travel is “very, very de­pressed,” Kirby said.
