People flying on American Airlines should check ahead before going to the airport today. American is going to be cutting flights this month and next after having to scrap more than 400 over the weekend, in many cases because the airline couldn’t find the crews to staff them.
On Monday, American announced it will cancel around 80 flights a day, every day for the rest of the month. The airline will then adjust a “fraction” of all flight schedules through July.
A statement by American pinned part of the blame on “the labor shortages some of our vendors are contending with and the incredibly quick ramp-up of customer demand.”
