American Expects Back to Normal Operations at Regional Unit

American Airlines says a regional affiliate should run close to a normal operation Thursday after canceling 2,750 flights in the past week because of a computer problem.

Spokeswoman Katie Cody said PSA Airlines stabilized its computer systems but faced delays getting planes and crews back in place. According to FlightStats, PSA canceled about 300 flights Wednesday.

Based in Dayton, Ohio, PSA is owned by American and operates many American Eagle regional flights, especially in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Cody said American has been rebooking stranded passengers on American and other airlines since disruptions started June 14.

She said there was a hardware problem in computers used to run crew-scheduling applications.

Regional airlines like PSA mostly operate flights between big cities and smaller airports using planes with fewer than 100 seats.
