FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - July numbers show American Airlines canceled more flights than any other major US air carrier.

Government figures show American canceled about 3.5 percent of its flights that month.

The airline blames a combination of factors including labor strife with its mechanics, poor weather and the grounding of its fleet of Boeing 737 Max jets due to two fatal crashes in less than six months.
