The flight, launched in November 2014, was already reduced from a daily service to three times a week earlier this year.

The suspension is from October 29 and passengers booked to travel after then will be rebooked with other carriers, Etihad said in an emailed statement.

"Etihad Airways remains strongly committed to its other U.S. services, which are performing at, or above, commercial targets," Etihad said.

The Abu Dhabi carrier flies to five other U.S. destinations including New York and Washington DC.
