Amer­i­can Air­lines to trim some flights in Philly

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - BUSINESS -

PHILADEL­PHIA » Philadel­phia In­ter­na­tional Air­port’s largest air­line will re­duce its waves of flight ar­rivals and de­par­tures from eight to six. The Philadel­phia Inquirer re­ports by col­laps­ing eight banks to six, Amer­i­can Air­lines will op­er­ate 30 to 40 fewer flights a day in Jan­uary than a year ago. The air­line says the move is de­signed to im­prove ef­fi­ciency and boost prof­its. The ear­li­est flights will leave the air­port at about 8 a.m. in­stead of 7:30 and the last flights of the day will de­part be­tween 8 and 9 p.m. in­stead of 10 or later.

Amer­i­can has also re­banked its hubs in Dal­las Fort Worth, Chicago and Mi­ami since the 2013 merger with US Air­ways. Philadel­phia will re­main Amer­i­can’s fourth-largest hub.
