More American Airline flights canceled today due to technical issues in Dayton


About 70 American Airlines flights have been canceled after another “technical issue” Sunday morning, including at least six flying through the Dayton International Airport.

The issue at PSA Airlines, a regional carrier for American Airlines based in Dayton, primarily affected flights arriving and departing from Charlotte, said American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein.

American Airlines has dispatched a group of technical workers to PSA’s headquarters in Dayton to resolve the “technical issue,” according to media reports.

Both of PSA’s technical issues on Thursday and Sunday are related to a crew scheduling and tracking system, which the airline uses to assign crews to each aircraft, Katie Cody, a spokeswoman with American Airlines told the Charlotte Observer.

The impacted Dayton flights include those arriving from Charlotte and departing to Charlotte and Philadelphia, according to the airport’s flight tracker.

PSA is operating a reduced schedule to and from Charlotte until noon today, but the issue is not affecting other regional carriers of American Airlines or mainline flights.

These cancellations come a few days after a “technical issue” canceled or delayed 675 American Airline flights Thursday and Friday.

Last week’s problem began in Dayton on Thursday afternoon because of issues with the carrier’s dispatch and crew scheduling system at PSA.

Flights were first halted at 4 p.m. Thursday after problems emerged at the airline’s local operations center in Dayton. The outage affected about 4 percent of American’s global flight operations, primarily shorter routes from its hub in Charlotte, N.C., American Airlines officials said.

“We understand that these cancellations have been frustrating for our customers, and we are doing everything in our power to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,” Feinstein said. “We are re-booking passengers and American’s Customer Relations department will be reaching out to all affected customers.”

Passengers can check their flight status on aa.com or the American Airlines app.
