United Airlines’ third-quarter revenue
will be higher than it had expected due to strong summer travel demand, the airline said. Separately, United said it will end flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York unless it can expand operations at the congested airport. The airline said Wednesday that revenue will be 12 percent higher than in the same quarter of 2019, up from its previous projection of an 11 percent increase over prepandemic levels. Meanwhile, United also said it will suspend service at JFK Airport at the end of October unless federal regulators allow it to operate more flights to compete better against rivals such as Jetblue and American.
