AA details slot-related cuts in Washington, New York

American Airlines plans to cut year-round, daily service from Washington Reagan National Airport to 17 destinations, citing slot divestitures required by the U.S. Department of Justice to approve the US Airways merger.

Markets include Detroit, Minneapolis, Montreal, San Diego and Savannah, Ga.

Timing of the service cuts hinges on the finalization of slot sales "in the coming weeks," according to AA.

Another market impacted by DOJ-mandated slot divestitures, New York LaGuardia, also will see services changes, including nonstop service cuts to Atlanta, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

Yet, citing the combined network of American and US Airways, AA is planning new LaGuardia service to 10 markets, including Charlottesville, Va.; Little Rock, Ark.; Dayton, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; Greensboro, N.C.; and Richmond, Va.
