North American Airlines to Discontinue Scheduled Service

By | February 24, 2008

New York based North American Airlines announced it will discontinue service between the United States and Lagos, Nigeria; Accra, Ghana; and Georgetown, Guyana beginning May 19th, and redeploy the aircraft to its charter business, which is more lucrative.

North American will not be refunding full roundtrips, only the discontinued portion, which will inconvenience many travelers. For more details, North American has an information page set up for its passengers.

We used to watch the passengers check in for the Georgetown flights, when hanging around Terminal 4 at JFK over the years, and even they admit a positive response(which is why Delta is picking up the route). As they put it, “NAA’s modern Boeing 757/767 fleet is in high demand and NAA will redeploy these aircraft profitably in the charter market.”
