Anyone like Amtrak? Road trips? Private jets? Really long bicycle rides? Because the airline industry is just not fun these days, especially for American Airlines customers. After yesterday's blow to the travelscape, it was announced this morning that an additional 900 flights were cancelled. Locally, 15 of the 92 LAX departures were axed -- an improvement from yesterday's 25. Additionally, airports in Burbank, Ontario and San Diego all had a small number of cancellations according to the LA Times.

"Tomorrow will be much better than today, and Saturday will be much better than tomorrow and Sunday will hopefully be a normal day," American spokesman Tim Wagner told the newspaper. But he forewarned that "it is a fluid situation."
