American Airlines expects its regional carrier PSA Airlines will resume normal flight schedules around noon today. Hundreds of people have been stranded at Charlotte Douglas International Airport after the airlines cancelled 600 flights throughout its system last night and this morning – about half of them originating in Charlotte.

Last night, there were long lines at customer service and rental car desks - and many customers vented their frustrations on social media.

American Airlines says it’s working to accommodate passengers on other airlines. The airline has not said what the technical problem is or what may have caused the problem.
