WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Several flights to and from Wilmington International Airport are canceled again Wednesday morning.

A technical issue caused hundreds of American Airlines flights to be canceled out of Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

American Airlines said an update is causing their computer systems to run slow.

The airline's carries, PSA, says they are doing everything they can to get things back to normal.

Bob Offutt, a travel industry analyst, discussed the issue on Monday afternoon's WECT News Now.

"Everything is interconnected so in this case, one of the modules that was corrupted was the crew scheduling, which means you couldn't get the pilots in the right place or on the right planes at the right time or you couldn't have enough flight attendants to legally fly the plane," Offutt said. "One little domino knocks over a bunch of others."

The following flights to and from Charlotte out of ILM were canceled as of 4 a.m. Wednesday:

  • 9:01 a.m. arrival
  • 9:34 a.m. departure
  • 10:45 a.m. arrival
  • 11:15 a.m. departure
  • 12:18 p.m. arrival
  • 12:48 departure

The 5:38 a.m. flight to Charlotte is delayed until 9:35 Wednesday morning.

The issues began Thursday night at Charlotte Douglas causing over 100 flights to be canceled due to technical issues with the airline. Since then, most flights to and from Charlotte out of ILM have been canceled.
