Delta Air Lines cancels plans to resume Cairo service; suspends Ammam route

Delta Air Lines has cancelled plans to resume services from New York JFK to Cairo due to weakness in demand (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 06-Apr-2011). The service was suspended in Feb-2011. The carrier is also suspending services from New York to Ammam as of 01-Jun-2011. The reductions are part of the airline's efforts to adjust to higher fuel costs by reducing its trans-Atlantic capacity by 4%.
