NEW YORK, July 11 (Reuters) - United Continental Holdings Inc said on Friday it would drop its daily flight to Caracas, Venezuela, from Houston, starting in September, joining other major U.S. carriers who have reduced service because of problems repatriating their revenue through the country's foreign exchange controls.

United said it will operate four flights a week to the country, starting Sept. 17.
