FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines will maintain service to its network of more than 250 cities in May, while reducing selected flights in international and domestic markets.
“These limited adjustments primarily affect international flying and a small number of domestic flights, and are in line with reductions we’re seeing throughout the industry due to the war in Iraq and economic conditions,” said Henry Joyner, senior vice president - Planning for the airline.
American will fly about 2 percent fewer domestic flights than planned in May. International flying will be about 13 percent lower than planned.
American will continue to serve every city in its network with a wide variety of flights, although the airline will delay launch of its planned Los Angeles to Tokyo service until spring of 2004 when it anticipates some strengthening of the marketplace.
