These days, the dollar is stronger than Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1984; it's practically terminating the euro, and making Europe dirt cheap right now. That's great news for American travelers. But on the flip side, it sucks for foreign travelers coming here -- what do we care? -- and for airlines. Which, will get no sympathy from anyone.
And with that in mind, Delta announced Wednesday it will be saying hasta la vista to a number of international flights later this year. The US airline plans to slash routes to Japan, Africa, India, and the Middle East by 15-20%, to Brazil by 15%, and suspend its service to Moscow entirely, thanks to dwindling interest from travelers abroad.
