More Flights Cut at LAX

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

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.
