American Airlines says a technical problem forced one of its regional carriers to cancel hundreds of flights around the country.

A company statement says American's PSA Airlines carrier canceled 275 flights Thursday and around 400 flights Friday because of the technical issue. Travel through Charlotte-Douglas International Airport is particularly affected, where nearly half of the daily schedule was canceled.

The airline says the problem was with a system that affects crew scheduling and dispatch operations. A spokesman said Friday morning the problem has been resolved and service was expected to resume at noon.

The airline says it's working to accommodate passengers on American flights and other regional carriers.

There were no problems with American Airlines itself or other regional carriers.
