The American carrier, the only one to serve African destinations such as Johannesburg, Lagos, Accra and Dakar, will discontinue its daily Houston-Lagos service, operated using B787-8 aircraft, with effect from June 30.

The move has come in response to a decline in the petroleum market as well as difficulties in expatriating the revenue from tickets.
