Air France Suspends LAX-LHR; Jet Airways Suspends SFO-BOM

2 moderate profile international flight suspensions I thought I’d pass along:

Air France will cancel its nonstop service from LAX to London Heathrow – without any major SkyTeam hub on either end, and quite a bit of competition, it was a non-starter.  Instead, it will fly a codeshare with Delta from London Heathrow to JFK, essentially giving Delta a 3rd daily nonstop on the route.

And Jet Airways will cancel its San Francisco – Mumbai flight (via Shanghai), as it could no longer handle the losses on the route.  That doesn’t bode well for Kingfisher’s announced entry into the busy US-India market.
