It sounds to me more like the first bit is (approximately), "Boarding now: Forest Hills, Someplace, Someplace, etc."

I've always heard "United Airlines Flight 12 (?!?), Pittsburgh ..." and then I don't understand the rest of it.

I always assumed it was Yoko's voice. But John was inspired to write the song and the album when he took a trip to Bermuda with Yoko, it makes sense it would be a recording he made of the flight out or in at the airport.
