American claims pilots causing delays

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

American claims its pilots are deliberately causing delays and cancelations -- leaving passengers in the dust.

The troubled airline says pilots are calling in sick or grounding planes for minor repairs. The union says American is operating with too few pilots and aging planes.

One flight tracker estimated 100 American flights were canceled on Monday. However no disruptions were reported at San Francisco International Airport Tuesday.
