People who fly out of Wichita will soon have fewer choices.
The war in Iraq is being blamed for trouble in the air here at home.
At least two of Wichita's air carriers will suspend some of their flights because of a slump in demand.
United Airlines will suspend two flights starting Tuesday, and Air Tran Airways will follow later in the month. In both cases this is a cutback, not a complete suspension of services.
United plans to suspend one daily express flight to Chicago and one to Denver. United still has three daily flights to Denver and four to Chicago.
A city spokeswoman also says Air Tran will suspend one mid-day flight a day to Atlanta starting April 11.
The suspension means Air Tran will have two other daily flights -- a morning and evening flight.
Experts say the flight suspensions are economic casualties caused by the war in Iraq.
Wichita is not the only city affected, United Airlines says it plans to drop 104 flights nationwide.
