American Airlines Will End Service to Four Cities in SEP Citing Pilot Shortage

American Airlines will cut service to four regional U.S. cities as of 07SEP due to a pilot shortage - Islip (ISP) or Ithaca (ITH) in New York; Toledo (TOL), Ohio; and Dubuque (DBQ), Iowa. As reported by USA Today, all four cities are currently served by the airline’s regional affiliates and have up to two daily flights to larger air hubs. An American Airlines spokesperson said the carrier has 100 regional aircraft they wish to fly but can’t due to a shortage of regional pilots. American Airlines added that it is taking other steps such as hiking regional pilot pay rates, to make its operation more reliable for the summer.
