Delta Air Lines is slashing flights to Venezuela over cash trapped in the South American country.

Delta is reducing service by 85 percent and will fly round trip between Atlanta and Caracas weekly rather than daily starting Aug.1, according to spokeswoman Sarah Lora.

Other airlines including American have already made similar moves.

The International Air Transport Association says Venezuela has prevented the reimbursement of $4 billion in airline money because of currency control problems.
