(FORT WORTH, Texas ) - American Airlines has canceled more than 900 flights on Thursday as it works to complete the inspections of its MD-80 fleet. The airline is also working to re-accommodate customers affected by this week’s activity.

As of Wednesday afternoon: 79 MD-80 aircraft were completely inspected; 60 of the 179 MD-80s were returned to service; 119 of the 179 MD-80s were still undergoing work; and 121 MD-80s remain to be inspected.

These inspections were conducted to ensure compliance with a Federal Aviation Administration directive related to the bundling of wires in the wheel well of the MD-80 aircraft. American Airlines apologizes for any inconvenience this activity has created for our customers.

On Wednesday, American officially canceled 1,094 flights, in addition to the 460 canceled on Tuesday.

Customers who were scheduled on a flight that was cancelled may request a full refund or apply the value of their ticket toward future travel on American Airlines. Additionally, customers scheduled to travel on any MD-80 flight April 8-11, even if their flight has not been cancelled, may rebook without a change fee to any AA flight with availability in the same cabin as long as their travel begins by April 17.

Customers who were inconvenienced with overnight stays should go to where a link has been established to request information about compensation. Customers also are encouraged to continue to check or to contact their travel agents for flight status information.
