American Airlines suffered another technical glitch Sunday that halted flights for about 40 minutes, but the airline said no flights were canceled as a result.
The airline’s main operating system and dispatch went down about 2:05 p.m. and the carrier temporarily suspended flights, the Federal Aviation Administration said. Flights resumed about 2:45 p.m., according to FAA.
Michelle Mohr, an American spokeswoman, said the problem stemmed from “a connectivity issue with one of our data centers.”
“All is back to normal and, thankfully, there were no cancellations as a result of the issue,” she said.
American wasn’t along with tech problems Sunday. SkyWest Airlines, which flies regional flights for America, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Alaska Airlines also had a system outage that delayed flights. But the FAA said Sunday afternoon that a temporary suspension of flights was over.
