American Airlines passengers have faced hundreds of cancellations and delays since Sunday, as the carrier struggles to recover from disruptions caused by severe thunderstorms that swept through its Dallas/Fort Worth International hub.
More than 270 flights — or 9 percent of American’s mainline schedule — had been canceled as of Tuesday morning, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware. At least 120 of the cancellations were due to a lack of flight crew, according to an internal list, which was reviewed by CNBC.
