American Airlines has announced that it will be cutting two of its six daily flights to Japan due to low demand from travelers.
The carrier, the third largest in the US serving Japan, will cut a daily flight from New York’s JFK Airport to Tokyo as well as one of two daily flights from Dallas-Fort Worth to Narita.
The airline is one of many to announce service cuts to Japan in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake and tsunami.
American spokesman Ed Martelle said the airline expects to reinstate the flights on April 26.
“Our scheduling people believe the situation will be stabilizing, but we’ll continue to monitor the situation and make whatever changes we have to make,” he said.
