On Sept. 6, United Airlines said it plans to end its service at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in October. This threat will be carried out if the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not provide the carrier with additional flights. Yahoo News.

United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby wrote a letter to Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen last week. He urged him to increase the number of United Airlines flights at JFK.

United operates flights to/from this airport only twice a day - to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“If we are unable to obtain additional flights for several seasons, we will have to suspend our services at JFK starting late October,” the email said.

The FAA said it must consider airport and runway capacity to assess how an increase in United Airlines flights to JFK would affect flights at nearby airports.
