  • American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ: AAL) plans to discontinue service to four U.S. cities from September. The cities will lose scheduled commercial air service entirely, reported CNBC.

  • AAL blamed the service restrictions on a regional pilot shortage. The report further noted American Airlines, United Airlines Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: UAL), and Delta Air Lines, Inc (NYSE: DAL) have reduced service between several smaller cities and major hubs, citing a scarcity of aviators as the reason.
