USA. American Airlines Cuits Back 9% of Planned 2022 International Flights.

Read Time:40 Seconds

December 9. American Airlines on Thursday said it will scale back its international flying next summer because of delivery delays of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners and that the manufacturer plans to compensate the carrier.

The delays come just as big Dreamliner customers like American and rival United Airlines gear up for what they expect to be a big summer for international travel after a two-year pandemic slump.

American planned to bring back 89% of its 2019 international long-haul flying next summer, but has trimmed that back to about 80%.

“This weekend we will load our summer 2022 long-haul schedule, but it will not have the growth we initially expected,” Vasu Raja, American’s chief revenue officer wrote in a memo to staff, which was included in its securities filing.
