Last month I reported that United was temporarily suspending flights between Chicago and Washington DC-Tel Aviv.
United has extended the suspension of those routes through at least March 3rd.
In January, United has been operating 10 weekly flights between Newark and Tel Aviv, with the earlier flight 84/85 only operating 3 days a week.
In February, that will be reduced to just 1 daily flight with flight 84/85 suspended through at least March 3rd. If you were booked on those flights you can be moved to flight 90/91 or you can request a full refund.
United will continue operating flight 90 from Newark to Tel Aviv at 8:25pm instead of 10:45pm through at least March 26th.
United will also reduce flights between San Francisco and Tel Aviv from daily to 3 per week through March 3rd.
In short, United will operate 10 weekly flights to Tel Aviv instead of their planned 27 weekly flights. With Israel’s borders remaining closed to foreign nationals through at least February 1st and likely to be extended, and with new ticket purchase restrictions on citizens, that’s not much of a surprise.
Israel isn’t the only place where United is making cuts, they are also continuing flights suspensions between Newark-Honolulu, Washington DC-Honolulu, Newark-Portland/PDX, Boston-San Francisco, Boston-Los Angeles, Cleveland-San Francisco, Cleveland-Los Angeles, LaGuardia-West Palm Beach, LaGuardia-Fort Myers, LaGuardia-Tampa, and more through at least March 3rd.
United is the only airline in the world that has maintained daily service to Tel Aviv during this pandemic. They even changed their post-Yom Kippur flight time when a DansDeals reader requested them to do so.
Were you booked on any of these cancelled flights?
