As seasons come and seasons go, American Airlines is preparing to suspend some of the routes it operates to limited running, or completely suspending them for the winter season.

Data: American Airlines

Flights to From Milan-MXP will be split, with four flights a week to New York JFK, three flights a week to Miami between 6th January 2015 and March 28th 2015.

(Oh, and it seems American Airlines are operating a new route to Brazil, stopping at Viracopos International Airport (VCP) in Campinas according to the release)

Seasonal changes are not unusual, as it allows airlines to deploy planes on more profitable services.

However, this could be a good time to check your bookings to see if you’re affected, and see if you’re rerouted on different flights and routes during these quieter periods.

Forewarned is forearmed after all… and when it comes to flights, it’s nice to have all the warning you can get…

    I am one of these affected flights…how lenient are they to let me choose which flights to be rebooked on? Or do they determine on their side?

      There should be a rebooking policy. You’ll need to contact AA reservations to see what you can get. My last rebookings were decided for me sadly (but amazingly, the timings were better)
