Hundreds of flights have been canceled by American Airlines and American Eagle as the carrier assess the hail damage to its planes at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

American spokesman Ed Martelle said that 68 American Airlines aircraft and 33 American Eagle planes were being inspected for damage. Between the two carriers, 40 flights have been diverted from DFW and 450 arrivals and departures have been canceled.
