United will continue to serve all of the cities except Del Rio, where it is the only carrier, with flights to other cities following the route cancellations.

The airline did not respond to inquiries regarding the cancellations.

United is the only one flying nonstop on the Houston-Cedar Rapids, Los Angeles-Tulsa, Washington-Manchester and Washington-Pensacola routes, according to Innovata schedules.

American flies between Chicago and San Juan, and Star partner US Airways between Newark and Philadelphia, according to Innovata.
