An American Airlines plane and a US Airways plane are parked at Washington's Ronald Reagan National Airport on Aug. 13.
DALLAS (AP) - American Airlines and US Airways will drop year-round, daily nonstop flights from Washington's Reagan National Airport to Detroit, San Diego and 15 other cities because of the deal they made to win government approval of their merger.
They will end nonstop flights from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Atlanta, Cleveland and Minneapolis but will add service from LaGuardia to 10 other cities.
The combined company, American Airlines Group Inc., announced the changes Wednesday.
American and US Airways are giving up some takeoff and landing rights in New York and Washington under a deal that settled a government lawsuit against their merger.
