CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is reducing service to Venezuela amid a dispute with the government over revenue trapped in the South American country. <br />
Delta spokeswoman Sarah Lora confirmed Monday that the carrier is reducing service by 85 percent, replacing its daily round-trip flight between Atlanta and Caracas with one round-trip weekend flight as of Aug. 1. <br />
Lora declined to say how much money Delta has stuck in Venezuela because of the government's hold on repatriation of airline revenue. <br />
Other airlines are locked in similar disputes. American Airlines reduced it service to Venezuela by 80 percent last week and now only flies in from Miami. <br />
The International Air Transport Association says Venezuela has prevented the repatriation of $4 billion in airline money because of currency control problems.
