Airlines Just Cut 34,000 US Flights Planned For November

The vast majority of the cuts were made by American.

According to the latest schedule upload, 34,000 flights to, from, and within the USA in November have been removed. This is on top of previous reductions, and it's the latest month to see big changes.

It means that, this week alone, November flights have fallen by 4.4%, a loss of 3.4 million seats for sale. One airline was primarily responsible.

November flights down by 34,000

While 20 airlines have reduced their November plans for the US, it is enormously down to American Airlines, as shown below. It has cut nearly 29,000 services in its latest schedule filing. This week, American expects 155,770 November flights, according to Cirium. That's down from 184,577 planned last week and 195,659 at the start of April. Of course, many other airlines have been chopping their schedules, and will continue to do so.
