SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Delta Air Lines says it is reducing the number of nonstop Salt Lake City-to-Tokyo flights, less than two months after the carrier launched them.
Glen Hauenstein, executive vice president of network planning and revenue management, said Wednesday that the swine flu virus hurt traffic that was expected to be on the flight between Salt Lake City International Airport and Narita Airport.
Delta is reducing the flight from five times a week to four starting on Sept. 1. The flight on Wednesday is being eliminated. Remaining flights will be on Mondays, Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays.
Hauenstein says the flight will be restored if Delta sees swine flu fears recede and an uptick in travel by the Japanese.
