United started flying between Chicago and Tel Aviv in September and resumed service between Washington DC and Tel Aviv in October.
With Israel’s borders remaining closed to foreign nationals, it’s no surprise that sales have been slow on United’s newest routes to Tel Aviv.
Last month United cancelled flights between Washington DC and Tel Aviv until at least March 5th.
And now United is cancelling flights between Chicago and Tel Aviv from January 4th until at least February 1st.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see United extend the Chicago to Tel Aviv route suspension into February if Israel doesn’t open their borders by the beginning of January.
United is reducing flights between Newark and Tel Aviv from 14 to 10 weekly in January.
They are flying 3 weekly flights between San Francisco and Tel Aviv and they are currently selling daily flights between San Francisco and Tel Aviv starting on February 1st. That too will likely be culled back to 3 weekly flights if Israel doesn’t open their borders by the beginning of January.
Israel isn’t the only place where United is making cuts, they are also suspending January and/or February flights between Newark-Honolulu, Newark-Seattle, Newark-Portland/PDX, Boston-San Francisco, Denver-Kauai, LaGuardia-West Palm Beach, LaGuardia-Fort Myers, LaGuardia-Tampa, and more.
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?
