American Airline Postpones Launch Of Chicago-Beijing Route
AMR Corporation's American Airlines has canceled its inaugural flight between Chicago and Beijing that was scheduled for April 26, 2010.
A spokesperson for the airline, Mary Frances Fagan, stated that the airline has halted the launch of daily nonstop service between the two cities for it had not received "commercially viable" arrival and departure slots from the Chinese aviation authorities.
