American Airlines may cancel flights around Christmas

If you depart for your study abroad program around Christmas and have booked your flight with American Airlines, we would like to make you aware of possible flight cancellations that may occur.

As CNBC reported on November 29 (https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/29/thousands-of-american-airlines-flights-dont-have-scheduled-pilots-union.html), American Airlines has fewer pilots available than actually needed over the holiday season due to a scheduling failure.

Therefore, please make sure to double check your flight itinerary and keep your CEPA Program Manager posted in case your flight is affected. We will then make sure to accommodate the modifications in order to allow a smooth program start after your arrival.
