Computer glitches that grounded American Airlines flights have been corrected.
At Southwest Florida International Airport, flights for the airline had resumed by 5 p.m. Tuesday, said Vicki Moreland, an airport spokeswoman.
American operates a total 12 flights at Southwest Florida International — three round-trips each to Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago-O’Hare airports, she said.
Three flights were canceled earlier Tuesday, she said.
A key computer system used to run many daily operations at American failed Tuesday. That prompted the nation’s third-largest carrier to ground all flights across the U.S. for a few hours, stranding thousands of passengers at airports and on planes.
