Emirates Trims U.S. Flights After Trump's Bans Cut Demand
Bloomberg -------- Emirates will cut flights to five of U.S. cities as demand deteriorated after U.S. restrictions on travel and on-board electronics affecting Middle East carriers and passengers. The world’s biggest international airline will reduce capacity to Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale in the coming weeks, the Dubai-based company said in a statement. Emirates will re-deploy the capacity to serve demand on other routes across its global network. “The recent actions taken by the U.S. government relating to the issuance of entry visas, heightened security vetting and restrictions on electronic devices in aircraft cabins, have had a direct impact on consumer interest and demand for air travel into the U.S.,” the company said in the statement. “Over the past three months, we have seen a significant deterioration in the booking profiles on all our U.S. routes, across all travel segments.” To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
