Nearly 35,000 flights are planned to be cut over a number of US airlines.

American Airlines is expected to make the deepest reductions to November schedules.

It is trimming nearly 29,000 flights according to Cirium data which represents an overall reduction of 12.6%.

Delta Air Lines schedule is cut by 4,396 which is about 3%.

Another 1,000 combined flights are being grounded by United Airlines, Frontier and Canada’s WestJet.

American Airlines’ (AA) schedule downsizing includes reduced flight frequencies on routes and some routes being suspended altogether.

These include Chicago to San Jose, and Phoenix to Cleveland.

Robert Isom, CEO at AA said that the airline is taking proactive measures to build in extra reliability for what will be a busy holiday travel period at the end of the year.  

It comes after AA cut about 15,000 flights for September and October.
