American Airlines Assures Customers It Won't Cancel Holiday Flights

If you plan to fly with American Airlines this holiday season, the company says there's nothing to worry about.

On Thursday, the airline issued a statement regarding the holiday scheduling error for its pilots and said it needs to address only a few hundred flights.

One day before, the company's pilots' union said thousands of scheduled flights lacked pilots because of a computer glitch that let too many take time off in the last two weeks of December.

In its response, American Airlines applauded the pilots who'll help fill the gaps and said more are on deck to help cover flights still in need.
