FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines has canceled another 296 flights as it works to replace or repair dozens of planes grounded in North Texas because of hail damage.

Spokeswoman Andrea Huguely says the cancellations on Friday affect flights in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The planes were caught in storms Tuesday that pounded the airport and spawned about a dozen tornadoes in North Texas.

Since the storms hit, American and its American Eagle affiliate have canceled about 1,600 flights, but with fewer cancelations each day. Huguely says only 27 cancellations are planned for Saturday as American gradually returns to normal operations.

The airlines identified 108 planes for inspections shortly after the hailstorms.

American and Eagle are owned by Fort Worth-based AMR Corp.
