    American Airlines is shutting down service at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport, the company announced Monday.

    "Our objective is to make our company competitive and more efficient in an increasingly challenging industry. We will continue to respond to operational and market changes -- as we always have -- and to make adjustments to ensure we are competitive," wrote AA in a statement.

    Feb. 9 will be the last day for the airline in to or out of Burbank.

    Although the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November, Monday's announcement was not related to restructuring, according to Ed Martelle of American Airline's media relations department.
