BURBANK — American Airlines flights were beginning to come and go again Friday after the carrier had canceled its entire schedule of flights in and out of Bob Hope Airport on Wednesday and Thursday. The limited service at Bob Hope on Friday came after a string of nationwide cancellations as the carrier works to correct problems related to wiring in its MD-80 planes. Eight trips, originally scheduled to and from the airline’s hub in Fort Worth, Texas — four each on Wednesday and Thursday — stranded more than 800 customers in Burbank as American continued its federally mandated investigation into the wrapping and securing of wire bundles in the wheel wells of all American’s 300 MD-80 jets, officials said.

BURBANK — They might be seeing less passengers these days, but the staff at Bob Hope Airport want you to know there’s “More airport than you thought” in Burbank. Airport staff conceived the new advertising slogan to help generate new business as Burbank’s slumping passenger levels mirror a national trend. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority’s new campaign comes on the heels of recently released July passenger levels that showed a decline of nearly 13% compared with a year ago. The figures reflect an ongoing trend in reduced passenger counts.

AIRPORT DISTRICT ? Proposed cutbacks for Southwest Airlines ? Bob Hope Airport?s largest carrier ? are due to take effect May 10, but the impact on the airport could be offset by its burgeoning revenue, airport officials said. Southwest Airlines, which accounts for up to 65% of departing and arriving flights, will cut four flights a day from its Burbank schedule, citing the country?s economic woes, Southwest spokeswoman Ashley Rodgers said. One daily round-trip flight from Phoenix, another from Sacramento and two from Oakland will be canceled, she said.
