Bad news for those trying to schedule early morning flights from the Johnstown-Cambria County Airport to Dulles International or late return trips: Beginning Thursday, those flights won’t be offered.

“That cuts into usage by (businessmen),” said Rich Weaver, airport authority chairman. “It’s just not good for the airport."
