American Airlines Grounds All Flights
Posted on April 16, 2013 by
American Airlines has grounded its entire fleet due to "network outages."
The American Airlines website (www.aa.com) currently has an alert:
If your travel plans are flexible, there will be no charge if you would like to change your reservation and we will provide full refunds if your travel plans are not flexible. However, we are unable to make changes to current travel plans until we have resolved this issue.
We will provide another update as soon as we have more information.
The outage is apparently affecting the entire operations, including the reservation system. The American Airlines official Twitter account posted that the ground delay on flights is expected to last until 4:00 pm CT.
