American Airlines cancels flights

NEW YORK (Reuters) - American Airlines, the No. 1 U.S. air
carrier, on Friday said it decided to temporarily cancel 15
daily roundtrip flights from its two largest hub airports
because of the skyrocketing price of jet fuel.

The airline, owned by AMR Corp., said the cancellations
would take effect October 5 and last at least through October
29. After that, they could be restarted depending on what
happens with fuel prices, AMR said in a statement.
