American Airlines Reports Delays at PHL After Internet Issues
American Airlines passengers saw major delays this morning after internet issues forced the airline to issue a temporary ground stop.
The problems, which were resolved around 8 a.m. this morning, occurred after a planned power outage that lasted between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. It took the airline four hours to fully restore service after the outage.
Flights were prevented from heading to Philadelphia during the ground stop. Delays and cancellations are to be expected throughout the rest of the day.
