American Airlines Computer Glitch Disrupts Pilots’ Schedules

American Airlines Group and the union that represents its pilots are discussing extra pay for some pilots to compensate them for flying future flights that got dropped from their schedules because of a computer glitch, the union said Sunday.

The Allied Pilots Association union said the airline’s scheduling platform mistakenly allowed pilots early Saturday morning to drop thousands of future trips. As a result, as many as 12,075 flights throughout the month of July lacked a captain, a first officer, or both, the union said.
