United halts Newark-Delhi flights on poor air quality

As smog envelops Delhi giving rise to poor visibility and health hazards, the United Airlines on Saturday temporarily suspended its flight originating from Newark to New Delhi for a few days, as reported by news agency ANI.

Earlier, the airline was offering waivers on rescheduling tickets.

The 5T differs from the 5 in its secondary camera , though, which is a 20-megapixel camera with IMX376K sensor and f/1.7 aperture. The primary sensor used at the back is a Sony IMX398 one, whereas the second one is a telephoto lens of Sony IMX376K.

The airline announced its decision on Friday, days after the air quality in New Delhi was rated hazardous, saying it would cancel flights from Newark, N.J., set to arrive on Saturday and Sunday, the Business Standard reported.

"We are monitoring advisories as the region remains under a public health emergency and are coordinating with respective government agencies". They issued a travel waiver on Thursday according to which customers travelling to Delhi between November 9 to November 13 can book a comparable ticket leaving on or before November 18 at no additional cost.
