AA cuts flights from Puerto Rico to US, Caribbean
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — American Airlines is cutting more than a dozen flights from Puerto Rico to U.S. and Caribbean destinations next year due to the economic crisis.
Spokeswoman Andrea Huguely says American will discontinue flights between San Juan and seven cities including Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Tampa, Fla., 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 Friday that an undetermined number of employees will be laid off.
