American Airlines Flight Cancellations.

Should you be due to fly with American Airlines in the near future please make sure you check in online whenever possible, as the airline is cancelling an increasing number of its services; in part due to staff shortages.

Flight cancellations have peaked, or as the carrier put it, they are cutting their schedule because of operational and staffing resources. The problem is being exacerbated because of ongoing disputes with their pilots too.

American also topped all airlines with 90 cancellations out of an industry wide total of 318 last Sunday according to FlightAware.com.
