American Airlines drops flights from Los Angeles to Newark, near New York

Now that American Airlines is under new management, I imagine this is likely the first of many schedule changes we’ll see at Los Angeles International Airport. The new leaders — led by former US Airways CEO Doug Parker and former US Airways president Scott Kirby — seem to place a premium on profitable routes. Flying routes “just because we always have” doesn’t seem to matter.

United (12 flights today) and Virgin America (1 flight) still fly this route.

Question for the audience: What city will American cut next from L.A.? What city will be added?
