Less than a week after the end of a regional air carrier American Airlines was forced to cancel hundreds of flights out of Charlotte due to a “technical problem” and days after the service was allegedly restored, the same problems seem to be flaring up again.

PSA Airlines is owned and operated by the U.s., canceled about 70 flights from Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Sunday night, blaming a “technical problem.”

“Sunday morning, PSA Airlines, an American Airlines regional carrier, experienced a technical issue, which mainly affected flights to Charlotte. As a result of this problem, PSA has cancelled flights for the rest of the Sunday evening of CLT, which is about 70 flights on regional jets, American Airlines confirmed in a statement.

“PSA will also be operating a reduced schedule in and out of CLT Monday morning, until noon, eastern time. This problem does not affect any of the other regional carriers or mainline flights,” the carrier added.

Fox Sports reporter Alan Cavanna, who was on board a PSA flight on Sunday, when he learned that the plane would not take away, says his plane the pilot told passengers there were no incoming or outgoing PSA flights because of a “crash.”
