Restoring 162 Flights Next Month
United Airlines will restore 162 flights to its June schedule,
which includes increased service to many domestic, European and
Pacific destinations that was previously reduced due to a drop in
demand during the Iraq war. As a result, United will operate 1,722
daily domestic and international departures in June, compared with
1,560 per day in May 2003.
"We are delighted to offer our customers a wider
variety of more convenient travel options by restoring 162 flights
to United's schedule," said Marty St. George, Director-Network
Planning. "As we prepare for the summer travel season, we have been
encouraged by the upturn in bookings that indicate a strong
recovery in many of the markets we serve."
Some 1527 flight attendants, currently on unpaid leave, are
also coming back, to take care of the added PAX. Just 300 will
remain on unpaid leave; 5270 are still on furlough.
The increase of flights in June has necessitated many changes to
flight numbers and departure times, which will affect more than one
million customer bookings. As a result, United will be notifying
affected customers through Reservations employees, through calls
from the company's new automated schedule change notification
system or through travel agents.
