The airline said Tuesday that it would fly on a limited schedule for the next couple of days as they work to get employees and aircraft to the correct locations for regular operations.

For unrelated reasons, United Airlines has also cancelled one departure from Dayton to Denver and one arrival from the same city as it recuperates from storms last night that grounded more than 700 flights in Chicago, where United is headquartered.

Eight United Airlines flights flying to and from Dayton were also cancelled last night, mostly from Chicago and Denver.

Over the past six days, more than 3,200 flights across the country have been cancelled between the two airlines.

American Airlines cancellations began last Thursday when a computer system glitch at PSA’s headquarters in Dayton, which resulted in 2500 total flight cancellations or delays.

During a record traveling season, these cancellations have displaced thousands of passengers.
