Chinese Carriers Cut Flights Over Fuel Costs

From AFP:

Two major Chinese airlines plan to cut the number of international flights they offer due to spiralling fuel costs, at least temporarily, the carriers said Tuesday.

China Southern Airlines, the country’s top carrier in terms of fleet size, said it planned to suspend an unspecified number of flights to cut costs.

“Southern Airlines does have such plans because of the high fuel prices,” a Guangzhou-based spokesman told AFP.

“But we are just cutting a number of flights temporarily rather than halting service on these routes,” he added, without giving further details.
