More Flights Cut at LAX

Here's one way to celebrate the national do-not-use-gas holiday known as Dump the Pump: announce long-term cancellations for 13% of your LAX flights and blame high fuel costs. That's what Delta is reported to be doing in a move that has somewhat become a trend.

And with that comes higher prices and less options for travel. The cuts affect nonstop routes to Boston, Hartford, Conn., and Columbus, Ohio, Mexico and Florida.

Meanwhile, United announced increased flight service at the LA Palmdale Regional Airport in an effort to boost the customer base of the smaller out-of-the-way airport in the Antelope Valley, north of Los Angeles.
