Scott Kirby, president of United Airlines, said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by Harvey and those impacted or currently in the path of Hurricane Irma. We are doing all we can to assist during this extraordinary time, and we stand with all of those affected as they prepare for and recover from these two unprecedented storms. Last month, faced with the devastating impacts of Harvey, as well as other operational issues, our employees rose to the test to make the most of a very challenging month. Thanks to the resilience and spirit of our dedicated employees, our operation in Houston has returned back to 100 percent today, ahead of schedule.”
