American Cuts 43 Flights at Lambert
By Tim Logan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Jun. 25--American Airlines and its affiliates will cut 43 daily departures from St. Louis this fall, the airline said a short time ago.
The figure of 43 flights cut includes some which have already taken effect. As of June 5, American ran 145 daily flights from St. Louis. By November, when the cuts announced today will take effect, it will have 116.
Direct service will be cut to Orange County, Calif., Baltimore, Md., Columbus, Ohio, Springfield, Mo., and New York's JFK International Airport. Other routes will see frequencies cut back, and in some cases American Airlines flights will be replaced with smaller planes flown by affiliates.
American says any passengers holding tickets on an affected flight will be re-accommodated.
Check back later today for more, and read tomorrow's Post-Dispatch for a complete story.
