Airline May Cancel Your Flight This Holiday

If you’re planning to fly American Airlines this holiday season, they  may be getting ready to Grinch you. That’s because the airline is  scrambling to fill a holiday pilot shortage. How did that happen?  Company officials say a computer glitch didn’t alert anyone that so many  pilots would be off on vacation.

Now, they’re scrambling to fill the void. A spokesman for the  nation's largest airline said today American is offering pilots 150% of  hourly pay to work open dates during the busy travel period.

The airline said it's working diligently to avoid canceling flights,  but if you’re planning to fly out of American’s biggest hubs such as New  York, Miami, Dallas-Fort Worth and Chicago's O'Hare…be warned, your  flight could be affected.
