Why are American Airlines flights cancelled?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

American Airlines flights may be cancelled due to a variety of factors including bad weather, mechanical issues, air traffic control delays, and staffing problems. Weather can be unpredictable, and aircraft may require maintenance before being deemed safe for takeoff. Delays and cancelations due to air traffic control (ATC) often occur when there is a problem with the aircraft's navigation system. Finally, staffing problems such as a shortage of crew members may also lead to flight cancelations.
