United’s return to New York JFK is delayed a second time.

In November, United Airlines officially announced that, after a five-year hiatus, it would return to New York’s busiest airport with new flights between JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO) beginning February 1. That date was later pushed back to Feb. 28 due to low demand.

Now, the airline is again delaying the expected relaunch of its service, this time to March 28, about two months later than planned.

“Due to the continued impact of COVID-19 on the industry, we are delaying the start of our service between New York JFK and our hubs in San Francisco and Los Angeles until March 28, 2021,” the airline said in a statement to The Points Guy.
