American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK) threatens to take its pilots to court over an increase in sick days and maintenance complaints from the group that the carrier alleges is a purposeful negotiating tactic. The Allied Pilots Association denies an organized sickout or slowdown is in play, blaming old planes and a shortage of pilots for the issue. Either way, the data tracked by Flightstats.com paints a rather ugly picture with American Airlines leading the pack of canceled and delayed flights by a wide margin.
