United Airlines (Chicago) plans to suspend winter service to Stockholm (Arlanda) and Oslo from its Newark hub between September 5, 2015 and May 4, 2016 according to a report by Reuters quoting a statement by the carrier.

United also expects to suspend one of its two daily flights between Newark and Paris from October 25 through March 26, 2016.

The carrier is reacting to weaker demand this coming winter season due to the strong U.S. dollar.

In other news, with additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (below) deliveries, United will start to assign the new type to the Houston (Bush Intercontinental) hub on its routes to Latin America and Europe, replacing older Boeing 767-300 ERs.
