Open Skies to abandon one of its routes

Open Skies, the British Airways unit operating business-class only flights between New York and Europe, says it will stop flying the JFK-Amsterdam route Aug. 16. The airline is the only survivor of several similar carriers offering all-business-class jets to Europe that started about four years ago and succumbed to high fuel costs and the recession. Open Skies, run by Dale Moss, a Philadelphia-area resident and ex-Rosenbluth Travel executive, will continue to fly from JFK to London. Read a little more from Travel Weekly here.
