(Reuters) - United Airlines UAL.O said on Thursday it has seen an uptick in cancellations and a decrease in bookings for the week ended Nov. 18, due to a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the United States.

The carrier said it continues to expect total revenue to be down by about 67% in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with a year earlier. (bit.ly/3nDvzPj)
