American Airlines Makes Big Cuts to November Schedule

American Airlines is making big adjustments to its schedule in the months ahead. The airline has already announced that it is cutting 2% of its flights in September and October. And now even more flights are cut from the November schedule.

The Forth Worth-based carrier is cutting a whopping 31,000 flights from its schedule in November. That amounts to about 16 percent of its total scheduled flights. The information comes from CNN, citing data from aviation research company Cirrium.

“Preliminary schedules are published 331 days in advance and then adjustments are made closer in based on the schedule we intend to operate,” American said to CNN in a statement. “We are now loading schedule adjustments approximately 100 days in advance, which is in line with how we adjusted our schedule in 2019 prior to the pandemic.”

Most of the cuts made by American Airlines are between Chicago O’Hare and Dallas-Fort Worth, as well as between Boston and Philadelphia.

Several airlines have made similar cuts to their schedule as they prepare for another surge in travel demand during the end of the year. Just a few days ago, JetBlue announced it was eliminating 37 routes.

Over the summer airlines were ill-prepared for to handle the increased passenger volumes, which led to massive delays and cancellations. Staff shortages are still an issue, so cutting flight schedule seems to be the preferred course of action for many carriers.

  1. Happened to be fooling around with AA from DTW in November just before I saw this, using both CTG and MEX as destinations. Plenty of everything, including AA apparently booking redemption flights on JetBlue metal.

  2. AA management misjudged staffing. Because of route cancellations and schedule changes, I’ve moved my short-haul business to another carrier. AA always treated me well but if the flights aren’t there to take, they aren’t there.
