BREAKING: American Airlines Grounds Over a Dozen Planes, 40 Flights Cancelled

American Airlines has reportedly grounded 14 planes over an overhead bin issue, forcing the cancellation of 40 flights. 

The main issue with the bins was that they would repeatedly open and that a cable running along the bins could chafe and catch fire. The finding came during inspections of two of the airplanes, with the other 12 planes being grounded out of an abundance of caution. 

American Airlines says that all of those on the cancelled flights have been rebooked.
