American Airlines will cut capacity in summer 2020 to address record low customer demand, including suspending 70% of domestic and 80% of international capacity for June versus the same period last year. The airline will also delay the start of some international service that was previously announced to begin in May and June. That service is now scheduled to begin operating in June and July, respectively. The updated schedules will be reflected on aa.com starting Sunday, May 3.

American also made additional reductions in service to New York’s airports (LGA, JFK and EWR), which will be extended through June 4. From May 6 through June 4, American will operate up to 15 daily flights from New York. Due to government restrictions in the Caribbean and Latin America, American will suspend 85% of its flying from Miami (MIA) through June 4.
