Reuters: Emirates, the world’s largest international airline by passenger traffic, said on Wednesday it was cutting flights on five US routes after restrictions imposed by President Donald Trump’s administration on some air travel had weakened demand.

Direct flights to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando would drop to five a week in May from daily flights, while Seattle and Boston flights would be reduced to a daily service in June from two flights a day. Twice daily Los Angeles flights would also be reduced in July to one a day.
