United Airlines has decided to step away from the battle for dominance at New Yorks JFK Airport. It is pulling up stakes and moving its p.s. premium trans-continental service to its hub at Newark-Liberty International Airport, effective Oct. 25, a move industry observer Mike Boyd of the Denver-based Boyd Group International applauds.


This move is brilliant and makes a lot of sense for everyone, said Boyd. United has a hub in Newark and flights out of LaGuardia. It can go to its hub and leave others to fight at JFK.

In this day and age, airlines want to dominate the bottom line not the world, said Boyd. Why should United stay at JFK if American, JetBlue and Delta are fighting over it? he asked. United doesnt need JFK now. They have everything covered in Newark.


With the change, United says it will cement its role as the New York areas trans-con flying, offering up to 17 daily round trips between Newark and San Francisco and up to 15 daily round trips between Newark and Los Angeles. The move will allow United to consolidate its operations at Newark, where, in 2014, it handled nearly 70 percent of the airports 35.6 million passengers.

United and Delta will switch their JFK and Newark slots, regulatory approval. United will also move several Boeing 757-200s flying on trans-Atlantic markets over to p.s. flights. At the same time, the airline will also add more 767s on trans-Atlantic flights.
