DALLAS (AP) - American Airlines says it has fixed an outage in its main reservations system that is disrupting travel for thousands of passengers whose flights have been delayed or canceled.
A 2:30 p.m. American Eagle flight scheduled to leave Corpus Christi for DFW Airport has now been pushed back to 5:30 p.m.
American Airlines spokeswoman Stacey Frantz said Tuesday that the system was fixed by 4:30 p.m. EDT. But the airline expects to see flight delays and cancellations throughout the rest of the day.
Tracking service FlightAware says that as of mid-afternoon, American has canceled more than 700 flights and another 765 flights are delayed.
Passengers are describing long airport lines and frustration at a lack of information from airline employees.
