American Airlines grounds more flights

Travel continues to be disrupted as American Airlines cancels more flights to check its MD-80 aircraft for wiring problems, the BBC reported.

American grounded 595 flights on Fridays. They have grounded 3,000 since Monday.

Alaska Airlines, Midwest Airlines and Delat Air Lines canceled flights on Thursday for MD-80 checks. US Airlines has also been ordered to check their MD-80 aircraft.

The American cancellations came after the Federal Aviation Administration inspected the MD-80 two weeks ago and said the wiring failed to meet standards.
