American Airlines Announces Additional Schedule Changes in Response to Customer Demand Related to COVID-19 Thursday, March 12, 2020, 9:10 PM FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) today announced additional adjustments to its schedule in response to decreased travel demand due to coronavirus (COVID-19). The company plans to: Reduce international capacity for the summer season by 34% versus the previous selling schedule, including a 50% reduction in April trans-Atlantic capacity. Continue to operate flights to and from Europe for up to seven days to ensure customers and employees can return home. Reduce service to South America, including a suspension of flights to Argentina. Suspended flights are expected to resume as early as May 7. New schedule changes include: Europe Continue operating flights from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), New York City (JFK), and Miami (MIA) to Barcelona (BCN), Madrid (MAD) and Paris (CDG) for up to seven days Suspending flights from Charlotte (CLT) and Philadelphia (PHL) to Amsterdam (AMS), Frankfurt (FRA), MAD, Munich (MUC) and Zurich (ZRH) on Friday, March 13, as CLT and PHL are not government-approved gateways Suspending service from Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina (RDU) to London (LHR) Reducing service from JFK, DFW and Chicago (ORD) to LHR Delaying the start of some seasonal routes to early May South America Suspending service from MIA, JFK, DFW, LAX to Buenos Aires (EZE) and ending service from MIA to Cordoba, Argentina (COR) Suspending service from DFW and LAX to São Paulo (GRU) Suspending service from DFW to Santiago (SCL) These capacity reductions assume no slot waivers are in place. At airports where demand exceeds airfield and/or terminal capacity, access is governed by slots that grant airlines permission to take off and land at specific times. Given the decrease in demand related to COVID-19, American has requested temporary relief from this usage requirement — otherwise known as requesting a slot waiver — to better align capacity with demand without the risk of losing valuable takeoff and landing slots for the future. American will continue to review its network and make adjustments as needed if waivers are granted. Taking care of customers American will continue to take care of customers as this situation develops. The airline announced today that it has offered to waive change fees for customers who purchased tickets prior to March 11 for travel to Europe, including the United Kingdom, through May 31. Additionally, American’s Reservations team will contact customers whose flights have been canceled directly by email or telephone. Customers who booked through a travel agent will be contacted by their agency directly. If a flight is canceled and a customer chooses not to be rebooked, they may request a full refund by visiting aa.com/refunds.

MIAMI — Spanish carrier Iberia has announced massive expansion plans to its Latin American network, which is already the most significant in the airline’s worldwide coverage. The carrier will increase frequencies on its flights between Madrid (MAD), Buenos Aires (EZE), and Mexico City (EZE). Iberia currently operates 254 flights per week across 16 countries in Latin America, with MEX and EZE being one of its busiest routes. BUENOS AIRES, MEXICO CITY From October 27, Buenos Aires will increase frequencies from 14-weekly flights to 17. The Spanish flag carrier has served the Argentinean capital city since 1946. The additional flights will be operated by the airline’s brand-new Airbus A330-200s, which come with a two-class configuration of 19 seats in Business and 269 in Economy. These extra three flights will provide a 90,000-seat increase, adding up to 625,000 seats per year. Iberia is also incrementing to 17 flights per week to MEX, which is also operating on a 14 times per week basis at the moment. This will kick in for the 2018/19 Winter season, which is three additional flights as compared to the previous year. The three flights will offer an additional 30,000 seats per year on the route, offering a 13% increase overall. Iberia has operated this route since 1950. The existing Mexico City flights are operated with the airline’s largest aircraft—the Airbus A340-600, which offers room for 36 people in Business, 23 in Premium Economy and 300 in Economy. The A340-600 will continue operating the three additional flights. SANTIAGO, SAN JUAN, RIO DE JANEIRO, GUATEMALA On top of these increments, Iberia is also adding flights to Santiago de Chile (SCL), from one daily flight to 10 services per week. Rio de Janeiro will also see an addition from four to five times per week, together with San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU), where 24% more seats will be on offer to fliers. Finally, on October 1, the carrier will be flying daily to Guatemala City (GUA), which is only operating on a four times per week basis. This is good news for Iberia as the Latin American market remains strong, it means that they do not have to focus into any other current markets at this time. As the carrier continues to receive its new Airbus A350-900 aircraft, the airline’s network might continue to expand further. Iberia took delivery in late-June the first of 16 A350s that the carrier is due to receive over the next three years, with the final delivery expected to be completed by 2021 respectively. https://airwaysmag.com/airlines/iberia-upgauges-presence-in-latin-america-details/
