United Airlines, which late yesterday announced it would reduce international flying by 95%, said late Saturday it would only reduce the schedule by 90%.

Calling this “a fluid situation,” the Chicago-based airline said it plans to continue to operate six flights to Frankfurt, London, São Paulo, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo, covering Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.

It will continue to offer service from its New York area hub at Newark Liberty International Airport to Frankfurt, Tel Aviv, and London’s Heathrow Airport.  In addition, it will continue to offer service from Houston to São Paulo and from San Francisco to both Tokyo’s Narita Airport and to Sydney.

In addition, to help travelers return to the United States, the airline will operate a number of flights through March 27 including New York to Amsterdam, Brussels, Munich, and São Paulo, Washington, D.C. to London, and San Francisco to Frankfurt. It will operate service from San Francisco to Seoul through March 29.
