AA cutting some Caribbean flights
SAN JUAN – American Airlines is cutting more than a dozen flights from Puerto Rico to United States and Caribbean destinations next year due to the economic crisis.
Spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said American would discontinue flights between San Juan and seven cities, including Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Tampa, Florida, by early April.
Meanwhile, American Eagle will cut service to six international destinations, including Haiti, Trinidad and several cities in the Dominican Republic.
However, the airline is adding one flight each from New York and Miami.
In all, American and American Eagle will operate an average of 41 daily flights through San Juan.
Huguely said last Friday that an undetermined number of employees would be laid off. (AP)
