DALLAS (AP) - Continental Airlines and Delta said today they will reduce service to Mexico, as swine flu fears keeps many U.S. travelers from venturing south of the border.
Houston-based Continental, the biggest U.S. carrier to Mexico, says it will cut by half the number of seats it sells to fly to Mexico beginning Monday. The Houston-based airline says it will work with travelers to get them where they need to go, although schedules and routes might change.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines announced late today that it too will reduce its Mexico service to match declining demand, but it didn't indicate how deep the cuts would be.
Dallas-based Southwest Airlines doesn't fly to Mexico, but its chief executive says bookings within the U.S. may have softened in the past week in response to concern about flying.
