July 02, 2020 / Sanjana Shivdas

American Airlines on Thursday forecast a 25 percent drop in its long-haul international summer capacity in 2021 over 2019, as the carrier curtails operations to cope with a slump in travel demand because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company will also discontinue several international routes that were once popular leisure destinations but are now expected to see decreased demand.
“In an effort to match low demand resulting from the coronavirus outbreak, the airline will realign its network with the goal of improving long-term profitability,” the company said in a statement.
