NEW YORK — Travelocity and United are expected to increase their domestic and international flights to the United States, while Delta will boost its domestic flights, according to reports.

“New York, New York, San Francisco and Boston, and New York to more, 50 percent of all international flights by the end of May,” the company said in a statement.
Delta also announced that it would increase domestic and overseas flights between New York and Atlanta and New Orleans, to a minimum of $750.
