The next in a series of airlines cutting flights to and from LAX is United. The second biggest carrier at the airport announced today that they "will slash about 20 percent of its Southern California schedule, or about 40 flights a day, including nonstop service to Frankfurt and Hong Kong," according to KCBS. They also report that Ontario Airport will be losing Jet Blue and ExpressJet, totaling a 37% loss in flights and making the airport one of the "hardest hit" in the industry.
