American Axes Chicago-Beijing, Adds Caribbean, Hawaii Flights

American Axes Chicago-Beijing, Adds Caribbean, Hawaii Flights
Ryan Boyd

Due to an allegedly underperforming route, American Airlines will be ceasing service to Beijing from Chicago on October 22 of this year, but will also be adding routes to Honolulu and four Caribbean destinations in an effort to remain competitive with United Airlines.

Although American will not longer operate routes to and from Beijing, the carrier will reportedly request that the Department of Transportation allow them to maintain the route authority in order to keep other carriers from having it. American went on to confirm that it has plans to open a route to the new Beijing airport once it’s opened.
