Technical issue continues to affect local American Airlines flights

Technical issue continues to affect local American Airlines flights

According to American Airlines, the regional carrier, PSA Airlines, experienced a technical issue that caused them to cancel their flights Thursday evening.

Flight officials said the airline is experiencing a "technical issue" which primarily impacts flights to Charlotte.

No other AA subsidiaries or partners were impacted by the issue, according to the spokesperson. "American is working to contact all those impacted, but please check your flight status before going to the airport".

PSA Airlines is a subsidiary of American Airlines and is headquartered at the Dayton International Airport.

WSOC has learned American Airlines is sending IT workers to Dayton, Ohio to help PSA Airlines fix the computer glitch that's canceled dozens of flights out of Charlotte over the past four days.

On Thursday night, thousands of people were stranded at Charlotte Douglas airport from the computer glitch. This issue appears to be isolated to PSA flights.

The previous agreement was an all-stock deal, and Comcast's cash offer was seen as a significant enticement. Last week, a judge signed off on AT&T's purchase of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN.

It's the second time since Friday that the carrier has dealt with the issue. This includes extended concession and checkpoint hours, additional aviation department support staff and making available emergency supplies to travelers including diapers, wipes and formula, blankets and pillows.

"We remain in constant communications with American Airlines and PSA as they continue to work to resume normal operations".

"PSA Airlines, an American Airlines regional carrier, has experienced technical issues today".

PSA Airlines, which is wholly owned by American Airlines, was forced to cancel about 70 more flights on Sunday evening, affecting schedules through Monday morning.

The cancellations are expected to continue through noon Monday, according to the carrier.
