United Continental Holdings is reviewing its management structure and the way it routes flights, according to Reuters

In a separate filing on Wednesday, United also announced that it would fly fewer flights out of its Houston Hub and build capacity in Denver and San Francisco.

This move was unsurprising as analysts have called on the airline to reduce the number of flights out of its Houston hub.
