FORT WORTH, Texas, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines has
reduced its international flying for April by 6 percent as its initial
response to the conflict in the Middle East. Selected flights to Europe
and Latin America will be canceled but no city will lose service
altogether. Passengers will be accommodated on other American Airlines

American will not immediately cut any domestic flights. Domestic
capacity for April was already planned to be down 7 percent from April

"It is clear that people are becoming more tentative about booking
international travel at this point in time," said Henry Joyner,
American's senior vice president-Planning. "We have targeted some
additional international flight reductions to complement our original
plan which already called for reduced capacity across the system in
April. We believe this approach is the prudent first step as we await
further developments. Additional schedule adjustments will obviously
depend on how customer demand reacts to this event."

The 6 percent reduction includes previous announcements that American is
delaying launch of its new Los Angeles to Tokyo flight for two months
and postponing an additional weekly flight on its Dallas/Fort Worth to
Tokyo route.

American will also reduce selected frequencies on routes from Boston,
Chicago and St. Louis to London; Dallas/Fort Worth to Paris; and Miami
to Belize, Guatemala City and Panama City. Because of multiple flights
in these markets, most of the routes will maintain daily nonstop

American does not know what -- if any -- employment impact these flight
reductions may create.

American's Comfort Policy allows customers to purchase domestic or
international tickets with a greater degree of flexibility during this
time of uncertainty. Full details are available on or by calling
American's Reservations offices at 1-800-433-7300.

American Airlines is the world's largest carrier. American, in concert
with American Eagle and the AmericanConnection regional carriers, makes
up the American Airlines network. Together, they serve more than 250
cities in 41 countries and territories with approximately 4,400 daily
flights. The combined network fleet numbers more than 1,100 aircraft.
Only American provides More Room Throughout Coach for More Coach
Passengers. American Airlines is a founding member of the oneworld

Marty, I talked to AA today. They don't know which international flights they're going to discontinue yet. They will refund cash or miles, try to rebook on another day they do fly, or will even accommodate on another carrier if necessary. They advised to just keep checking flights. If you notice your flight has been cancelled - call them to rebook. They will eventually contact you if your affected, but that can be just a few weeks before travel.

They way I look at it, if they cancel a flight I'm on - it will give me an excuse to rebook and stay longer (without the change fee laugh ).
