Travelers Still Stranded as American Airlines Re-Examines Jets

Go to ABC News original
With nearly 3,000 flights canceled this week, American Airlines is still scrambling to accommodate passengers. The airline canceled another 595 flights Friday in addition to the thousands it has canceled since Tuesday.

American said Friday morning that more than 225 of the carrier's 300 MD-80 jets are back in service. The airline is rotating the planes back into service once inspectors re-examine wiring, and expects to get the rest of them back in the air by tomorrow night.

Delta, Midwest and Alaska airlines also canceled flights this week for inspections, though in smaller numbers than American.
