(CNN) -- With the threat of Irene behind, airlines will resume operations Monday.

The three major airports serving New York -- Kennedy, Newark and LaGuardia -- and others along the U.S. East Coast will also reopen Monday.

Here is an airline-by-airline breakdown of operations that were made available early Monday morning:

Delta Air Lines

Flights will resume around noon Monday. The airline is undecided on adding new flights to make up for the weekend's canceled flights, but spokesman Morgan Durrant said Delta expects every customer to be accommodated in the next few days.

United Airlines and Continental Airlines

United and Continenal flights will resume Monday from the three major New York-area airports where operations were suspended Saturday and Sunday. The carriers also will resume service at airports in White Plains, New York; Boston; Hartford, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; Portland, Maine; Manchester, New Hampshire; and Albany, New York, following Sunday flight suspensions.

Airline employees from other domestic locations will be in New York to assist with resuming operations, the airlines said in a statement.

AirTran Airways

AirTran Airways will resume flights to New York and Boston Monday. The airline resumed operations at Washington-area airports and all other affected airports Sunday. AirTran expects to be operating a full schedule by Tuesday and has added some extra flights to accommodate passengers and reposition aircraft within the system.

Jet Blue

Jet Blue will start flying again from New York metropolitan airports and Boston at 3 p.m. ET Monday, said spokesman Mateo Leras. Some additional flights have been scheduled to handle the backlog of passengers.

US Airways

US Airways will resume flight operations Monday morning in the Northeast and will be back to a full schedule by Tuesday, said spokesman Todd Lehmacher. No additional flights have been added.

Southwest Airlines

Southwest will operate a normal schedule Monday at LaGuardia Airport in New York and McArthur Airport on Long Island, spokeswoman Katie McDonald said. Southwest flights from Newark Airport will resume around 11 a.m. ET. The airline canceled more than 750 flights at the three airports on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

American Airlines

American will resume service Monday at airports in the Northeast, according to spokeswoman Andrea Huguely. A few morning flights won't fly, but the afternoon schedule will be full. Extra flights may be added if demand is high enough.
