American Airlines reviewing charges; FAA claims maintenance problems

DALLAS (WKOW) -- American Airlines says it's reviewing the latest charges from the Federal Aviation Administration concerning alleged maintenance problems.

The FAA is proposing nearly $800,000 in fines against American for three incidents.

In the most serious case, the regulators say American operated a plane without replacing a central air data computer. The FAA says the plane flew 10 flights with a broken computer.

American has 30 days to respond.

The proposed fine is the latest in a series of penalties American faces for maintenance violations.

An airline spokesman says American is "very proud" of its safety record.
