Seventeen airports to feel cuts

Three airports in the Gulf Coast will lose American Airlines direct flight to Washington D.C.'s Reagan National Airport. American Airlines will cut the daily nonstop flights to Florida's Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Tallahassee, along with 14 other small and midsize cities. It results from the deal that paved the way for American's merger with US Airways. As the newly created world's largest passenger airline, American was required to give up the National Airport slots to win federal approval of the merger.
