As long as Brett Hart serves as acting CEO of United Airlines, replacing Oscar Munoz, who is on medical leave, he'll earn an extra $100,000 per month. Not a bad raise, considering in his last job, as the airline's top lawyer, he was making $500,000 per year. Wall Street Journal.
For decades, United Airlines flew to New York JFK. But not anymore. The airline quietly packed up late Saturday. It will no longer fly to Los Angeles and San Francisco. Those flights have moved to Newark. The Street.
