American Airlines Problems

American Airlines, the operating business of bankrupt AMR, cannot seem to solve the problems of how the seats are fastened to the floors of its planes. Coming just after a pilot work slowdown that caused many flights to be cancelled, American had first two planes, and then more, in which rows of seats with loose bolts caused risks to passengers. And the problem has gotten worse as more seat flaws have triggered more flight cancellations.

According to BBC News reports:

American Airlines has cancelled 94 flights as it works to fix passenger seats that could come loose.

The problems grow every day; so do concerns that it is far from over.
