American Airlines has announced several route changes for the winter travel season. These changes are mainly focused on the flights at the Chicago O'Hare airport. However, Miami, Dallas and Charlotte will see some changes as well.

The newest flights are focused on leisure destinations in the Caribbean and Hawaii. The most notable change is the suspension of the Chicago to Beijing flight.

American Airlines has applied to the government for a permit to allow the carrier to suspend the flight to Beijing but still retain the right to reactivate the flight at a later date. Flights to China are heavily regulated by both countries, and all airlines are very competitive about securing these flights. However, American Airlines has stated that the Beijing flight is currently not in high enough demand from Chicago O'Hare International Airport to justify keeping it on the schedule after October 20th of this year.
