Amsterdam Cut JetBlue’s Summer Flights.
The Queens, New York–based airline is currently in a federal antitrust trial over its proposed merger with Spirit and a

JetBlue began nonstop service from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to the Netherlands in August, followed
by Boston Logan International Airport in September. Airport Coordination Netherlands (ACNL), which manages Schiphol's
slots, refused takeoff and landing rights for summer 2024 to the airline and 24 other newcomers, managing director Hugo Thomassen told AFAR.
On November 2, airlines were informed of ACNL's new limits, the latest in a debate over the Dutch government's Schiphol traffic
New JetBlue services from JFK and Boston to Amsterdam are running till summer high season. JetBlue's summer banishment
from Schiphol doesn't auger well for international travelers seeking to take advantage of the new East Coast-Amsterdam routes
