United Airlines said on Tuesday it plans to end service in October at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, where it failed to profit over seven years because it offered few connections to other cities, and add flights at its Newark, New Jersey, hub. Beginning Oct. 25, United Continental Holdings Inc will transfer its only flights from JFK, which serve Los Angeles and San Francisco on Boeing Co 757 aircraft, to Newark Liberty International Airport, its hub in New Jersey with hundreds of connecting flights. The move marks an effort by United to win travelers in the highly competitive transcontinental market, where rivals American Airlines Group Inc , Delta Air Lines Inc and JetBlue Airways Corp have invested heavily in renovating aircraft cabins and airport terminals.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. federal prosecutors are investigating the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team for hacking into the computers of the Houston Astros to steal closely guarded information about player personnel, The New York Times reported on Tuesday. Compromised information includes internal discussions about trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports, the Times reported, citing law enforcement officials. There is evidence that officials of the Cardinals, who won the 2006 and 2011 World Series and are one of the sport's most respected franchises, broke into a network of special databases, the report said.
