American Airlines returns to business as usual

Following a week in which over 3,000 flights were canceled, American Airlines is returning to it's normal routine, reports CNN.

American Airlines canceled almost 3,300 flights this week to hold inspections to ensure that the planes met with FAA standards and safety regulations.

The cancellations began on Tuesday with 300 of American's jets being grounded for inspection regarding wire bundles. The bundles needed to be wrapped so to bee the FAA's safety requirements and prevent potential fires on board the aircraft.

Two weeks ago American Airlines had to cancel 400 flights for repair work.
