Morrisville, Caroline du Nord – As of Monday morning, more than 100 American Airlines flights were canceled across the country.
This is the third consecutive day of cancellations that put aside summer travel plans.
On the boards this morning at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, American Airlines has all flights departing on time. However, Flight Aware is showing 104 cancellations today, which means connecting return flights are affected.
RDU passenger Frank Huisking told WRAL News his daughter’s flight to New York was canceled at the last minute after speaking to representatives on Sunday evening.
American said it canceled hundreds of flights due to staff and maintenance shortages as well as other issues such as bad weather.
More than 300 flights were canceled between Saturday and Sunday. American Airlines says nearly 100 flights could be canceled every day until mid-July.
American said it would try to notify customers well in advance of their flights and give them the option to book alternative flights through its app.
At RDU, American canceled just one flight on Monday – out of 38 scheduled departures.
