Frozen fuel lines force cancellation of some O'Hare flights
Saturday, January 10, 2015 11:27 AM EST
CHICAGO (AP) -
Frozen fuel lines at O'Hare International Airport forced American Airlines to cancel more than a dozen flights.
As temperatures again sank below zero, airline spokeswoman Leslie Scott says, the fuel system froze up around 5:30 p.m. Friday.
She says 16 of the airline's regional American Eagle flights were canceled. Other flights were delayed.
The airline put a backup plan in place and used tanker trucks to refuel planes at each gate.
WMAQ-TV reports that passengers had to endure long waits on planes that were held up on the tarmac.
By Saturday morning, the airline said the fuel lines were working normally again.
