American Airlines announced further capacity cuts in April and May to address record low customer demand due to cities and countries closing down over the spread of coronavirus. American said Friday it will suspend 60% of capacity in April as compared with the same period in 2019 and is planning to suspend up to 80% of its capacity in May compared with the same period in 2019. The changes are due to significantly decreased customer demand and government travel restrictions related to coronavirus (COVID-19), according to a statement from the company. The statement said the reductions take into consideration the FAA’s recent decision to grant additional flexibility in slot-use policies at US airports. These waivers, said the statement, allow the carrier to better align capacity with demand in light of adjustments to the flight schedule.
